The terminal version does not require glib. This should not be needed.

I ran into this yesterday and the problem is that when you run `make
deps` with latest Textadept hg, it pulls in an archived version of lspawn,
which is outdated. You'll need to run `make deps NIGHTLY=1` to pull the
latest lspawn.

I hope that helps.
