If the .pc file is the ONLY file that would qualify for -devel (aka, no
headers, no static libs, nothing to develop a program against), then
there is no reason to force a -devel subpackage just for it.

HOWEVER: If you have any development headers/libraries, they need to be
in -devel. Pointing at Core packages as a "see, FC doesn't do this",
doesn't count as precedence, given that all Core packages don't even
come remotely close to meeting the Packaging Guidelines right now. :)

By FC-6, well, then we'll have a different story.
