Okay, I was able to successfully apply the patch against HEAD in GNOME's 
CVS and the libexslt.pc file was generated okay.  I tried applying the 
patch against libxslt 1.0.32 (GARNOME 0.27.1) however, but the build 
didn't produce a libexlt.pc.  Tracking down and fixing the problem, 
unfortunately, has confounded me :-/.

I was able, after a lot of head-scratching, to work out how to patch my 
friend's software to use libexslt the Proper Way against CVS HEAD of 
libxslt fixed up with your patch, and copes with libexslt.pc not being 
present okay.

Thanks for your help, and thanks for writing such a great piece of software!
