pkg-config is supplied from pkgsrc and looks there already.

gnome-config is invoked by pkg-config as a fallback.  So it's not the
real error.

pkg-config needs to be to told what to report; just pkg-config and
module doesn't do much useful.

I have pygtk-2.0 installed.

fnord gdt 11 /usr/home/gdt > pkg-config  --atleast-version=2.6.0 pygtk-2.0 --libs
fnord gdt 12 /usr/home/gdt > pkg-config pygtk-2.0 --libs
-Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -L/usr/pkg/lib -lgobject-2.0 -lglib-2.0 -lintl  

So it seems that --atleast-version is not working the way you expect.

The man page says that it returns with differenet exit status, and
doesn't print anything.




              These  options  test  whether the package or list of packages on
              the command line are known to pkg-config, and optionally whether
              the  version  number  of a package meets certain contraints.  If
              all packages exist and meet the specified  version  constraints,
              pkg-config  exits  successfully.  Otherwise  it exits unsuccess-

              Rather than using the version-test options, you can simply  give
              a version constraint after each package name, for example:
                $ pkg-config --exists 'glib-2.0 >= 1.3.4 libxml = 1.8.3'
              Remember to use --print-errors if you want error messages.
