Thanks a lot for your help, Ján.  I'll close the bug once version 1.2.8 is released.

I have successfully compiled the git version with glib2 2.36.4 (on Slackware64 14.1). I think that this bug report can be closed. Thank you for your work on GNU MDK.

I've pushed a couple of patches that should fix this problem (by incorporating into mdk a version of the completion utilities).  In case you find a minute to test the git version, please let me know if it doesn't work for you.  Thanks!

Thanks for the report.  Last time i checked, there were no plans for a g_completion replacement.  As a first step, what i'll do is to just include the code for g_completion in MDK's source tree, taking it directly from glib 2.34.

g_completion API has been marked as deprecated (unmaintained), since this API is rarely used and it will probably be removed in the newer versions of glib2.

I didn't find any information about the suitable replacement of this API in glib2. Therefore, I think GNU MDK will have to include its own implementation of the completion mechanism or to use another library providing this functionality.

In glib2 >= 2.35.6 the gcompletion.h is conditionally included from glib.h and G_DISABLE_DEPRECATED is defined in configure.ac of GNU MDK. Therefore, compilation of GNU MDK terminates on error caused by missing definitions of functions/structures/types.
