And "regularly" broken in the normal case, if I had a penny for every
time some package forgot to add something to PKG_CONFIG_PATH or what it
is called or just giving the wrong output (especially for static linking
it is often broken)...
Not to mention the non-availability of pkg-config in some cases.
Still, using pkg-config + providing a "emulation" sounded tempting in
past discussion but so far nobody has gone forward to prove it
