I see. Wouldn't it be wise of us them to request a fix from the pkg-config 
developers then?

And I remember I told in Dublin that declarative is better than imperative in 
build systems, and somehow lost the discussion. Now there's better ammunition 
available :)
A related issue is how automake merged the _INCLUDES into _CPPFLAGS, which I 
also never understood.
