You asked for it and you got an answer, so where is the point ? Personally I 
think that pkgconfig adds another level of complexity to the to be build 
software. The old *-config files did the trick very well but NO, something 
new has to be created just for the sake going for new ways. All these evil 
things has been invented by people working on GNOME. Instead getting the 
desktop up to some usable state you people trying hard to convince other 
projects to adapt your stuff.

Anyways I again wonder where we stepped again with this conversation. I always 
wonder why this is happening on the GNOME lists and on no other list. 
Seriously the GNOME people are the most hard to deal with people. We simply 
have to different opinions and we should still respect each other without 
getting on a low level of conversation.
