You're probably really tired of hearing from me on this issue :)

I think it would be nice to backport that fix to F9 and F10. Since the
feature that patch was originally trying to address (bad pkg-config
autoreqs) is not being used in those fedora releases, I think it would
be good to get pkg-config back in line with the upstream behavior. As
it stands, the patch is only serving to make the F9 and F10 pkg-config
incompatible with other releases out in the wild. There's no gain from
keeping that patch, IMO.
