Well, the package depends on a version that usually comes with a pc
file. Are you sure the installed version would be sufficient?

IMHO: It's much effort for a little gain in build time and hard disk
space. For me, the personal-time vs. disk-space/build-time tradeoff
wouldn't pay off.

If you want to invest the time, you could probably extend the
x11-links package to provide matching .pc files for your installation.
