Here i have 674 for /usr/lib/pkgconfig and 9 for /usr/share/pkgconfig so the
factor is even greater.
Ingmar told me about this change. Which makes sense : /usr/lib is for stuff
that depends on the architecture (binary), and /usr/share for independant
stuff. For example in my /usr/share/pkgconfig i currently have :
gnome-doc-utils.pc gnome-icon-theme.pc gnome-mime-data-2.0.pc icon-naming-
utils.pc iso-codes.pc shared-mime-info.pc taglib-sharp.pc usbutils.pc
I can see that, for example, xtrans indeed only install arch-independant files.
Now, i did a quick search for documentation about pkg-config and could not find
any specification or indication. Source tarballs and homepage have nothing, the
'guide' link on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pkg-config is broken.....
As a conclusion, i feel ok with the current setup, until someone finds any
more-or-less official indication or recommendation that /usr/share/pkgconfig
should not be used.
(of course, if there's any inconvenient in keeping our *.pc fie here, i would
like to know about it... any packager here?)
