Easier isn't really an issue since I already did it, but here is the
rationale I can think of:

 - this way is more robust against bad PKG_CONFIG_PATH
 - this way avoids a hack in the .pc file to support the 
   pkg-config --uninstalled predicate (you need to know you 
   are linking uninstalled to disable all TRY_RUN and CHECK_LIB 
 - maybe it's simpler to know to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH to "glib/" 
   rather than "glib/uninstalled-pkgconfig/"

Other than that, it probably doesn't matter too much. I didn't really
think of doing it this way though.
