| I am trying to get pkg-config installed onto a server I run and it
| fails during make.  The server is an IBM AIX (5.3) server, FYI...
| Let's see, I get the following while make'ing:
|         source='pkg.c' object='pkg.o' libtool=no  depfile='.deps/pkg.Po'
| tmpdepfile='.deps/pkg.TPo'  depmode=aix /bin/sh ./depcomp  cc
| -DPKG_CONFIG_PC_PATH="\"/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/share/pkgcon
| fig\"" -I./glib-1.2.8    -g -Wall -O2 -g -c `test -f 'pkg.c' || echo
| './'`pkg.c
| cc: 1501-210 command option Wall contains an incorrect subargument
| make: 1254-004 The error code from the last command is 40.

Known bug, the Makefile.{in,am} contains -Wall, which is a gcc-ism.
Just patch that out and it should compile fine.

(A fix has already been committed to arch, I just haven't gotten
around to releasing it yet.)
