Description Juan Manuel Borges Caño 2007-01-15 21:23:05 EST
Description of problem:
all the devel apps that uses pkgname-config should change to pkg-config, like
sdl-config, i think it's a better use of the config program paradigm for
developers, furthermore the use of pkgname-config would populate the filesystem
of a great quantity of little programs that do the same thing, per package.
I think that pkg-config was maded for resolve this problem. I think that working
with per package config programs is a bug, now that pkg-config exists.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2007-02-12 09:44:28 EST
sdl-config and many other xxx-config scripts have been around for ages before
pkg-config was invented. Many many makefiles and configure scripts rely on
sdl-config. Thus sdl-config cannot be removed, if you want SDL-devel to supply a
pkgconfig (.pc) file in addition to sdl-config you shopuld request this
upstream, not here.

Closing as notabug.
