	x11/rep-gtk2 (and hence wm/sawfish) uses pkg-config but
	does nothing to make it available.   Build fails...

	Start with a clean /usr/pkg - the easy way (the way i detected
	this) is to use pkg_config and start with a (relatively) clean
	sandbox.   Attempt to build x11/rep-gtk2 (or wm/sawfish which

	I suspect there's probably a conventional way to cause this
	dependency to be satisfied (I suspect it is fairly common) so
	I won't bother supplying a useless patch with my way of making
	it happen...

	A simple workaround is to manually install pkg-config before
	building x11/rep-gtk2 (or wm/sawfish).   Did that, all OK,
	x11/rep-gtk2 still should be fixed..
