I don't see the problem.  If there was a libglade-gal library that handled
the gal widgets for libglade, it could depend on gal and libglade, so this
would not cause a loop in the library dependencies.

However, you would have a build dependency loop if you tried to put this
libglade/gal support library in the libglade package.  Libglade installs
all the headers necessary to compile such a library separately though.  In
fact, the support library could be integrated into GAL itself.

So removing the libglade dependency in gal is not necessary.
