iso-codes-devel is one, and I'm sure we have or will soon see a request
to put the gnome-icon-theme .pc file in its own -devel, too.
The relevant section of the guidelines for this is:
- *SHOULD*: The placement of pkgconfig(.pc) files depends on their use
case, and this is usually for development purposes, so should be placed
in a -devel pkg. A reasonable exception is that the main pkg itself is a
devel tool not installed in a user runtime, e.g. gcc or gdb.
