[systemd-devel] discussions of pkg-config black magic over at gentoo

Hey guys,

Thought I'd put this discussion upstream. At the moment at Gentoo [1],
we're considering building without the compat-libs, but still with
installing the pkg-config files, so that most out of date packages will
work with a rebuild without having to patch the build system, and we won't
have to ship the old libraries, which is problematic for us because we want
to support ARM.

So right now we're considering something like this [2] or [3]. A bit of a
bummer to patch the build system like this, but we don't want to rely on
IFUNC, and this seems like the cleanest solution. So I thought I'd mention
this up here in case folks have opinions and such.
