In the native win32 build, it does depend on glib (which I believe
is what Bob is using). But I agree, it's not important.

Then, glib
doesn't actually depend on pkg-config. configure only checks for it's
presense since we think that pkg-config should be installed when glib
is installed. This is just a convenience check to catch problems
early. pkg-config is not used at all during the glib build process.

If, and when, libiconv and/or gettext provide a .pc file, I would
like glib's configure to use pkg-config to find them. It would make
my life easier :-)

Whatever, pkg-config is just a build tool. It doesn't need to be
present on the target platform and it should not be a problem to
install pkg-config on the build host (especially since it comes
packaged with all distributions).

Indeed. It runs on systems where autoconf can't run (eg., win32
without cgywin installed) and, contrary to Tristan's views, I
find it invaluable when cross-compiling.

This has nothing to do with the development of glib.
