I am a developer/maintainer of the anjuta idea and we run into a problem
when dealing with pkg-config. We want to scan the include directories
given by each package to receive symbols. The problem is that for
example "pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0" gives us cflags for gtk+ and all
it's dependencies. We don't know which flag belongs to which of the

So, I wanted to kindly ask if it would be possible to merge the patch
from bug #2458 ([1]) to master which would allow us to fix it by
comparing the cflags of the required packages.
