No, there's nothing wrong with it.  That has nothing to do with gladeui. 
  Read it again -- /usr/lib/libglade is failing to be created.  It's 
required now, and this unfortunately breaks non-root installs.  If you 
know of a way to install libglade modules to a non-root location without 
breaking the install for regular users (missing widgets in the settings 
dialog would suck), please submit a patch.
