Most .pc files are architecture dependent -- they include flags
like -L/usr/lib64, and so forth.
But there are some cases where you have packages that are architecture
independent that you want to have .pc files for. An example being
the 'gtk-doc' perl scripts.
(Hmm, we should create a pkg-config component on
bugzilla.freedesktop.org, now that that exists)
