In many cases, conflict arise because there is a -L%{_libdir}
which is not needed anyway since it is already on the search
path. Otherwise it is possible for upstream to ship and old-style
*-config script and a wrapper around pkgconfig such that, as a 
packager you can chose to install the wrapper around pkgconfig.
If I recall well, this is what is done in libdap.
