| Aehm, wait a minute!
| If you drop the bundled glib and then move to glib2, pkg-config will
| be _NOT_ crosscompilable anymore (since its dependencies aren't).

Why will moving to a non-embedded glib make any difference wrt
cross-compilation support?

(Also, I don't really think we should care deeply about pkg-config being
cross-compilable, just build it for and on the architecture you run your
compiler on.)
