Does that even exist?

I mean, we have a hard dependency on huge C compilers, why would a 120kB
almost¹ standalone C program solving most of the library detection issues
is a problem for any user?

Note: pkg-config will never be a hard dep to build FFmpeg, just a build
requirement if and only if you want (some/most) external libs.
