The previous discussion starts here:

That requestor got off to an extremely bad start by presuming that
a documentation-free patch with no prior discussion would be a
sufficient way of proposing a new feature.  However there are a
couple of pretty compelling points mentioned later in the thread,
particularly the issue of multiple installations on one machine.
(And does pkg-config still not distinguish CPPFLAGS from CFLAGS?)

Since that was two years ago, maybe we should take another look
and see if pkg-config has gotten better.  If it hasn't evolved
some then the answer will probably be the same though.
