The point of kde-config is that it tells you which paths KDE uses for various 
things, given the various and currently active KDE configuration options for 
that. I don't see how pkg-config can know e.g. which additional wallpaper 
directories have been configured for KDE, or which KIOSK-profile is currently 

I guess there is some overlap in the sense that some of the prefix options 
could be handled by pkg-config as well.
