Yup. I used that as a reference point for what to do. And since I agreed
with its parts, the end result happened to look exactly the same :-)

[ strictly speaking, we may have some stuff to tweak outside of includes and
  libs; for example, doc or other 'share' stuff ]

Yes. I've been planning to pattern it after apu-config, actually.
(apr-config has got a lot more gunk in it for exporting portability stuff;
we are closer to apu-config)

Jon Trowbridge has also filed an enhancement request issue for creating
pkg-config files. It seems that the last time that I looked at pkg-config, I
didn't like it at all (but I don't recall why; it has been a while). So
we'll need to see whether to do something like apu-config or fit into the
pkg-config framework (or both!).
