I would like to know whether my ideas have some support among people who
decide about pkg-config future.
I would like to have support for CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS (currently it is
everything ), CXXFLAGS and LDFLAGS.

I would like pkg-config to produce <host>-pkg-config executable so that
the user doesn't have to do it for himself.
Next, I would like to search for that executable (or link) in the
$prefix directory when using pkg-config with autotools scripts.

This is really neccessarry for smooth cross-compilation, am I wrong?

Next, I don't like dependency on popt and glib (it makes compilation
under Windows quite troublesome).

I would like to do something, but I would like to know whether it is
welcomed or not first.
