I don't care much, but I still find not having to use pkg-config
somewhat more convenient in a cross-compilation environment where
you don't want to install all dependencies just to make it work with
pkg-config (or alternatively manually hack those files).
There is also a (minority) of projects with pkg-config files that
cause undesirable side-effects which can hide errors.

1) SDL and apr add  -D_GNU_SOURCE=1
2) fuse adds -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
3) xorg-server adds -fvisibility=hidden

I admit that it looks surprisingly good nowadays though.
