FWIW, I think providing a pkgconfig file is very much a "root"

packages (and also some others) provide them nowadays which is great,
and has made the things you express dissatisfaction with in the above
as well as other similar ones pretty much moot.
i can't agree more.
In fact, I think VDR should also provide a *.pc file. I ship one in
Fedora's VDR packages, and a good deal of it would be applicable to
upstream VDR too. Just let me know if you're interested and I'll have
a look at making a upstreamable version of it.
i would even say VDR is broken in the way it handles plaugins. VDR's
Makefile should install all exported vdr headers in
$(PREFIX)/include/vdr and provide a vdr.pc file (as you suggest). then
plugins could be buildable outside of VDR's source directory and
install themself in $(PREFIX)/lib/vdr. as any other plugin capable
program out there i know.
just my 2 cents ...
you are so damn right!
+1 from my side
The beginning is the most important part of the work.
