Both: dpkg-source creates the .pc with the appropriate info, and quilt has
been modidied (with upstream collaboration) to use that info (and set it
up if it's not there).

And for you problem of dirty VCS, do you know of --unapply-patches option
for dpkg-source? you can put it in debian/source/local-options, see
dpkg-source(1) for explanations.
