This is because you do not know what kde-config does ;)

KDE provides the ability to have both local and global paths depending on what 
the sysadmin has setup the environment for.  This allows developers to have 
multiple parallel installs of source trees without clobbering things.  
Currently without hacking pc files, or strange games with the pkg-conf path 
you cannot get the same behavior.

Now with this in mind its insane to require pkg-conf to link to KDE.  It is 
also insane to duplicate the same data, and dependencies information in KDE's 
tool.  This is the goal here.  Reduce duplication and make one point to
