Maybe they(windows) should/will use it if they want kde4.  :)

I don't think it unreasonable to make pkgconfig a core requirement for kde4. 
Long-term, life will be much simpler down the road.  Else, all I see is a
major regression (from kde3) in terms of (detecting|configuring) (build
runtime) environments.

IMO, without pkgconfig, you're in for a world of hurt.
