Well, I use around 10 libraries in my project, it's easier to use standardized 
methods to gather the compiler/linker options using pkg-config than calling 
different configuration scripts for each one, and using "pkg-config --exists 
$name" or "pkg-config --at-least=1.0 $name" than to check whether 
the "pg_config" script (and so with the rest) exists in your path, and 
figuring out ways to compare versions.  I was reporting it as a wish-list 
item after all :)
