As I wrote above, dbus is optional (only if you want to try out the
test case - glib provides its own dbus interface, so definitely
doesn't need a dbus library.)

Neither zlib, libffi nor pcre use pkg-config. (They may provide .pc files,
that doesn't mean that they use it.)

It's a rather short "chain" - see above.
