After the following random walk through my system

$ python
Python 2.6.4 (r264:75706, Dec  7 2009, 18:43:55)
[GCC 4.4.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import glib
>>> glib.__file__
'/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/gtk-2.0/glib/__init__.pyc'

In the above __init__.py:
...
from glib._glib import *
_PyGLib_API = _glib._PyGLib_API

del _glib
...

>>> import sys
>>> sys.modules["glib._glib"]
<module 'glib._glib' from 
'/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/gtk-2.0/glib/_glib.so'>
>>>
$ dpkg -S _glib.so
python-gobject: /usr/lib/pyshared/python2.5/gtk-2.0/glib/_glib.so
python-gobject: /usr/lib/pyshared/python2.6/gtk-2.0/glib/_glib.so
$

... I believe that you have to install the python-gobject package.
