Hell, right. I was looking for string "pkg-config" and I didn't find it.
Could you correct it, please?

What would you say about note like this one (base on Rene's email).

Should I add *.pc files in -dev package?

If upstream provides such files the answer is: yes, you should.
Otherwise, if there's no -I and -L needed, it isn't necessary, but when
either of them is needed, you are recommended to create one, unless there is
an old-style foo-config.
