Hi, I wonder if nowadays pkg-config would qualify as Build-Essential.
We have 2400 source packages listing it as explicit Build-Depends and countless -dev packages pulling in pkg-config. So the list of packages requiring pkg-config during build is potentially much longer. At which point do we consider a package Build-Essential? It's not like every package actually uses gcc or make during build either. Aside from the sheer number of packages requiring pkg-config, adding it to build-essential would be an endorsement of pkg-config as the one right tool to detect dependencies during configure. Thoughts? -- Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the universe are pointed away from Earth?
