Pkg-conf is one of the most promising tools that I have seen in a while.  It 
makes a great attempt at solving interdependencies of development packages.  
The only gripes I have had with it so far have been its lack of formal 
documentation, and the current implementation seems to lack real development 
effort behind it.

Zack Rusin and I have built a completely testdriven version in C++ and have 
started on using those tests to build formal documentation of the format.  We 
have also started to build an API so that applications such at kde-config and 
other binary *-conf utilities can reuse pkg-conf metadata, dependencies and 
features without having to re-invent the wheel every time.  

Currently Release 1 (xnoybis)	is on our server.

Interested parties should kick it around and suggest patches.  We are still 
working on Win32 support.  It build right now with mingw32, but the paths are 
still not correct.  This is alpha and should be updated later this week.
