[PATCH 0/8] Relocatable package fixes

Here's a few fixes to improve the two relocatable package features in
pkg-config. For the redefined prefix feature, I allowed the default to
be controlled at build time and added an option to specify the behavior
at runtime in either direction. I then fixed some things up to make it
available on all platforms. For the ${pcfiledir} feature, I simply
documented it more completely. Finally, I added tests for both.

I think this should address bugs 62018 and 63602. LRN - the first patch
would allow you to build pkg-config so that it defaults to
--dont-define-prefix, but the runtime control is still entirely through
the options.

Dan Nicholson (8):
  Allow more control of redefined prefix behavior
  Allow Windows prefix redefinition in any pkgconfig directory
  Store the original prefix value in the package
  Remove compat definition of G_IS_DIR_SEPARATOR
  Make the --define-prefix feature available on all platforms
  Document all pkg-config derived metadata variables
  check: Define all useful build directories in config.sh
  check: Test relocatable features
