Standardized by whom?  It seems like a fairly dubious idea to me, since
it can't support multiple installations on one machine.  I see no such
directory as /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ on my own machines anyway.

[ blink ] Doesn't that immediately defeat the claimed purpose?  If you
don't know where to look for the .pc file then you are back with the
same complaint you lodge against pg_config.

What would seem saner to me is a switch that determines whether to
install it or not, period.  The "not" case is required for non-root

Since I haven't heard anyone else asking for pkgconfig support, I'm
inclined to say we should put the whole idea on the shelf until there's
more evidence that it's worth something.
