  Description     : a pkg-config replacement

 pkgconf is a replacement for pkg-config, a system for managing library
 compile and link flags that works with automake and autoconf.
 As far as it's known to date, pkgconf is compatible with all known
 variations of this macro. pkgconf detects at runtime whether or not it
 was started as 'pkg-config', and if so, attempts to set program options
 such that its behaviour is similar.
 pkgconf builds an acyclic directed dependency graph. This allows for
 the user to more conservatively link their binaries — which may be
 helpful in some environments, such as when prelink(1) is being used. As
 a result of building a directed dependency graph designed for the
 specific problem domain provided by the user, more accurate
 dependencies can be determined. pkg-config, on the other hand builds a
 database of all known pkg-config files on the system before attempting
 to resolve dependencies, which is a considerably slower and less
 efficient design.
 pkgconf does not bundle any third-party libraries or depend on any
 third-party libraries.
