Pff, you're just being picky. Some of them are very original (not 
correct, just original). 
Qt4 includes pc files for all of its libraries. Actually Qt 3 already 
does have a pc file. It's just that most of the Qt configure checks, 
not ripped out from the KDE build system, are going for originality and 
mass confusion and essentially none of them uses pkg-config.
