Coincidentally, if you want to write pkgconfig semantics into perl,
in OpenBSD, we got fed up of the glib2<->pkgconfig build loop, and we
rewrote a clone of pkgconfig in perl... I know it doesn't help the other
systems which removed perl from the base system, but in a perl context, that
could be very helpful.
Heck, it's even removably clean, with all the code in a module, so it
should be fairly easy to integrate into a pure perl build system...
