Make sure to clean up empty package, in 1.18

libnm-glib is already disabled, and left three empty

packages(no package generated acturally). I found

the issue, trace the reason and provide fix

You may note original PACKAGECONFIG[glib] does not have

without option, so clean up it rather than add missing without option

PACKAGECONFIG[glib] = "--with-libnm-glib,,dbus-glib-native dbus-glib"

I think it will be upgraded 1.20 soon, and if someone wants

to use legacy code, I think 1.16 in warrior is better choose

which libnm-glib is always enabled
