Or maybe just provide some dummy pkg-config files in this toplevel super
module, and set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable before the configure scripts
of pango, atk and gtk+ are called, so that they find these pkg-config
scripts that give the correct paths.  The pango.pc file might look
something like this:


  Name: Pango
  Description: Internationalized text handling
  Version: 0.15
  Requires: glib-2.0,gobject-2.0,gmodule-2.0
  Libs: ${top_builddir}/pango/pango/libpango.la
  Cflags: -I${top_srcdir}/pango

We would definitely need libtool-1.4 for this, otherwise the shared
library dependencies would cause problems.
