*-config programs and multi-arch
In several packages I maintain there are programs that function like
(adios-config in adios; dap-config in libdap-dev). These then contain
information similar to pkg-config files.
What is the preferred solution for handling these in the multi-arch
Currently I am working on providing pkg-config .pc files as a replacement
(and requesting that upstream deprecate the *-config scripts); I could
rewrite the adios_config
and dap-config scripts to read the pkg-config file information, but I'm
pkg-config works in multiarch when multiple arch versions of a library
how is pkg-config expected to behave when multiple architecture versions
of a lib
are installed, and if I make, e.g. adios_config return the same results,
should I ship
adios_config in /usr/bin of libadios-dev in a multiarch version?
