glib is set up so that you can install parallel versions.

Get the src.rpm from a newer distro, change the name to
compat-glib2 and tweak the spec file to build with the changed name and add

Provides: glib2 = %{version}

(and for devel - Provides glib2-devel = %{version}

Build it and it should install parallel to the stock glib2.

Of course, you may need to do the same thing with some dependencies just 
to get the compat-glib2 to build.

I might have a spec file for updated glib2 sitting around somewhere, but 
I stopped using CentOS for desktop so if that is one of the libs I had 
updated for myself, it may be older than 2.16 (I seem to remember doing 
it for 2.14) but I'll see if I have it. It may have been archived to one 
of my DVD's if I do, and I never built an index of what was on them. But 
I'll see if I can find it.
