The commit message was adjusted to the community standards.

I removed the explanation.

Good idea! The comment was dropped from the commit message. Instead, I
added your note to the code.

Actually, my installation did not rebuild much at all, perhaps because
my local desktop runs few servers that would use PAM for

Looking through the long list of consuming packages, my sense is that
one of the build systems may pull it in, perhaps via fakeroot or sudo.
I am not sure why cl-css or cl-uglify-js would otherwise need PAM.

I encountered no problems locally, but cannot speculate how Guix's
numerous build systems might react to the presence of the three new
Pkgconfig files. It was a reason why I mentioned the files in my
original commit message. My thought was that someone triangulating a
build issue elsewhere could perhaps find the information helpful.

An updated patch, which was also rebased, was attached. Thank you!

Kind regards,
Felix Lechner
