Normally, I would agree. "If libbacktrace needs a CXXFLAG, then put in
the pc file". That's reasonable for most flags, because most flags are
*additive*. But the -std flag is not. If backtrace.pc added '-std=c++11'
to CXXFLAGS, but a different package required c++14, how should Mesa
resolve that conflict?
As precedent, I searched all pc files on my Debian machine. The only pc
files that add -std to CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS are the icu-*.pc files. And
those files should serve as anti-precedent in most cases; they are badly
written compared to all other pc files I've seen.
