Well, there are cases where pkg-config is used at runtime, which is why the
MUST was changed to a SHOULD and the "The placement of pkgconfig(.pc) files
depends on their usecase, and this is usually for development purposes"
wording is now used. Talk to the FPC folks if you need to know more about
this issue. In the cases where it is indeed used at runtime, requiring
pkgconfig is actually the right thing to do (but requiring various -devel
packages isn't - if that's what's happpening, something needs to be done
about it).
