While Martijn has done a great job pushing pkgconfig along, it should
be noted that the current pkgconfig doesn't bear all that much
resemblence to the first version he put up based on James's work.

Havoc rewrote it in C a few months ago with using a new config file
format that was mostly my design. So any problems in the older
pkgconfig may not be there now, any problems in the current pkgconfig
are most likely our fault.

Please send your problems to gnome-devel so everybody can see them and
comment on them.
