Yes.

About glibmm2.4, changes from 2.54.1-1 to 2.54.1-2 [1] are
brought by a patch [2], which modifies header files.
And, the fixes apply to both x86_64 and x86.

Without the fixes, we'll get an error like this (by gcc (GCC) 10.2.0):
====
...
/usr/include/glibmm-2.4/glibmm/threads.h: In member function ‘GPrivate* Glib::Treads::Private<T>::gobj()’:
/usr/include/glibmm-2.4/glibmm/threads.h:660:29: error: cannot convert ‘GPrivat’ to ‘GPrivate*’ in return
  660 |   GPrivate* gobj() { return gobject_; }
      |                             ^~~~~~~~
      |                             |
      |                             GPrivate

A similar case has been reported on a Fedora system [3] and it has been fixed by the patch [2].
