This line can probably just be removed if people have it, the
PKG_CHECK_MODULES macro already contains such a thing.  (Though it may
well be the source of the bad shell, I don't know. If so it can be
fixed in that one place.)

get syntax errors when you run your compiler, you can't really blame
people for accidentally introducing such problems.
