Thanks, but at least in kubuntu, there is no pc files for libfaac/faad:
madsdyd at ripley:~$ pkg-config --list-all | grep -i faac
madsdyd at ripley:~$

I do check 7 packages using pkg-config, but for e.g. mad, it turns out that 
the .pc file is specific to (k)ubuntu

Description: MPEG audio decoder development library
 MAD is an MPEG audio decoder. It currently only supports the MPEG 1
 standard, but fully implements all three audio layers (Layer I, Layer II,
 and Layer III, the latter often colloquially known as MP3.)
 This is the package you need to develop or compile applications that use MAD.

I have added a check for that, because my own compiles at some point has 
required it? I could try without it though - would solve my "is the package 
present" problem :-)
