pkgconfig-0.15.0: description + notes

The pkg-config program is used to retrieve information about installed libraries in the system. It is typically used to compile and link against one or more libraries. Here is a typical usage scenario in a Makefile:
    program: program.c
             cc program.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs gnomeui`

pkg-config retrieves information about packages from special metadata files. These files are named after the package, with the extension .pc. By default, pkg-config looks in the directory /usr/freeware/lib32/pkgconfig for these files; it will also look in the colon-separated list of directories specified by the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable.
