Sorry to have to ask some rather stupid questions, but I want to make
sure I understand the effects of this before landing.

Shouldn't there still be an error message generated if the $PKG_CONFIG
run (below) fails?


Here's where I think I'm confused.  The main purpose of
PKG_CHECK_MODULES as I understand it is to define CFLAGS and LIBS
variables, so this would be e.g. WAYLAND_SCANNER_CFLAGS and
WAYLAND_SCANNER_LIBS.  Yet I'm not spotting where either of these are
actually used.  We only need the binary, not the library stuff, right?
Is it declaring any other variables or doing other work we need?

Bill, Daniel, you two had comments on the earlier incarnation of this
patch, so I'd like to hear if your concerns are addressed or not before
landing this one.
