Re: pkg.m4 missing in pkg-config v0.28 tool download for GTK+ 3.x on win32

Hi Legorol, Legorol writes:
On the Windows 32-bit download page (, under the GTK+ 3.x heading, various "other third party software" are listed. One of those is pkg-config version 0.28. Two download options are available: Tool or Sources. The Tool option links to This does not contain share/aclocal/pkg.m4, as it should in my opinion. The only way to obtain pkg.m4 is from the Sources link.

In fact, the all-in-one bundle does contain pkg.m4. I never checked before, but is this file necessary (besides GLib and other dependencies) for pkg-config.exe to execute correctly ? If it is, I agree it should be in the package.
An inexperienced user, who is just looking to install pkg-config on their system in order to use it to build some other package, will not expect to have to obtain the source.
