Hi Adam,

Please note, in OpenBSD words beginning with pkg are used for package
tools and package related system utilities, e.g. pkg_add & pkglocate.

I would consider a utility using that word as prefix, and not related
to package tools and package utilities for OpenBSD a deterioration of
my user interface, if some "useful" package pulled in a dependency on
this tool you're proposing with a confusing name, that is not related
to the OpenBSD package tools and package management system utilities.

How about not naming a port pkgsomething here pkgconf, unless it does
relate to the OpenBSD pkg tools, maybe configures OpenBSD pkg system?

Instead of polluting any pkg-config with pkgconf, maybe rename both..

Kind regards,
Anton Lazarov
