In many cases, it's trivial to add pkgconfig files (if upstream doesn't)
and to rewrite <pkg>-config scripts as wrappers to pkgconfig.
Whether this makes sense and has a long term perspective, are different
IMO not because after introducing this all packages which provides
<foo>-config scripts must additionaly depents on pkgconfig tool .. look
this next set of things which enlarges enthropy.
Now pkgconfig dependency is build stage (BuildRequires). After this it
will change it to install some *-devel packages stage.
