For pkg-config 0.18.1 on OS X 10.3.9 using gcc-3.3 from XCode-1.5:

Steps to reproduce:
1. ./configure --enable-indirect-deps
2. make
3. cd check && make check

make  check-TESTS
PASS: check-cflags
../pkg-config --libs simple :
'-lsimple -lm' != '-lsimple'
FAIL: check-libs
PASS: check-define-variable
PASS: check-libs-private
../pkg-config --libs requires-test :
'-L/requires-test/lib -L/private-dep/lib -L/public-dep/lib -lrequires-test -lprivate-dep -lpublic-dep' != '-L/requires-test/lib -L/public-dep/lib -lrequires-test -lpublic-dep'
FAIL: check-requires-private
2 of 5 tests failed
make[1]: *** [check-TESTS] Error 1
make: *** [check-am] Error 2

Expected results:
All tests pass.

Other details:

I get the same results if I hack ./configure to use the glib-1.2.10
installed by fink instead of the glib-1.2.8 that came with and built
as part of pkg-config.

I see pkg-confg as a product in the GNOME bugzilla search but not in
its enter-new-bug screen. Should we be using this mailing list as the
primary support system, or is there a bug in bugzilla?
