huh ?  did you mean to actually say "doesnt support pkg-config" ?

none of which support SYSROOT either.  so this line of reasoning could be used 
to support a generalized cross tool that wraps all of the *-config scripts on 
the fly.  that's exactly what we've been doing with Gentoo and with uClinux-
dist and havent hit a package yet where it causes problems.  no need to hassle 
upstream package maintainers except other than to push them to support a pkg-
config .pc file.
