[SOLVED] glib can't be found, despite being in use on machine

I'm trying to compile surf by suckless, running make i get the following error:

surf build options:

Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gcr-3.pc'

I figured out that make can't find glib at usr/include/glib-2.0 or /usr/lib/glib-2.0/include however checking there shows that glib is in fact installed. So i changed <glib.h> to <glib-2.0/glib.h>, this solved the issue but now make instead returned:

compilation terminated.
make: *** [Makefile:31: surf.o] Error 1

Which means that glib can't find itself for compilation. Strangely however it is being used for other programs installed on the system.
My question then is, how can i change the cflag to find glib so that i don't have to manually add glib-2.0/ to every single #include.

P.S. this is a brand new Vbox machine arch install running dwm (if that's relevant).

You can add the cflags and the clibs to the config.mk inside the build directory, instead of patching the includes directly.

You can list all targets by

pkg-config --list-all

and then look for glib.

I was too hasty, your missing a depenency  on gcr, see the AUR package for more.

If you had the same issue, installing gcr would be the issue. If that doesn't do it, make a new thread with full logs.

You're right. My problem is only what's in the title. Currently, it's
