Huh?  pkg-config has *always* used glib.  The only difference is
that glib used to be bundled into the distfile, and now it's an
external dependency.

What's the real problem again?

pkg-config is self-contained. Given how central in the dependency tree
it is, that's quite important. More so since there are quite a few
