Well, the thing is that the .pc doesn't list all those libraries, it's
just that pkg-config is adding them. The .pc file looks like below.
Apparently, pkg-config is following the "Requires" link and appending
all those libs also. Perhaps that's supposed to be Requires.private.
Of perhaps the Requires shouldn't be there at all.

There's a bug here somewhere...
