Ok, I see, I'll stop using it then :-)

I could do that, it's a pretty simple format. There would have to be
a pkg-config file for each of the svn libs, but the dependencies
between the svn libraries could be expressed nicely using the 'Requires'
pkg-config keyword. For example, svn_repos.pc.in:

        Name: svn_repos
        Description: Subversion Local Repository Access
        Requires: svn_fs svn_delta svn_subr
        Version: @PACKAGE_VERSION@
        Libs: -L${libdir} -lsvn_repos-1
        Cflags: -I${includedir}/subversion-1

and when you write

        pkg-config --libs svn_repos

you get

         -L/tmp/svn-install/lib -lsvn_repos-1 -lsvn_fs-1 -lsvn_delta-1 -lsvn_subr-1 -laprutil-0 -lgdbm -ldb-4.0 -lexpat -lapr-0 -lrt -lm -lcrypt -lnsl -ldl


I can write the rest of these if you want, but I'm not sure how to
write the install rules for the Makefile. The .pc.in files could be
put in a pkg-config subdirectory to avoid cluttering the top source
