What platforms are those?

I don't think it does. Given that X.Org depends on it now and we know it works
on windows and osx - number of platforms that are left out and we can
reasonably support is most likely zero.

We're talking about development here not users. And to be honest all packages
that use pkg-config have error messages like:
"configure: error: Library requirements (someLib >= 0.1.0) not met; consider
adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a
nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them." And during the check
"Perhaps you should add the directory containing `someLib.pc' to the
PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable" if someLib isn't found.
Is that not enough?
