No... you run it like:

    pkg-config --libs art-sharp

As you and I both know, the "#" symbol is used to make comments
in most shells.  So, it would be awkward and non-intuitive to
call it the .pc file "Art#.pc".

For pkgconfig, if you name the .pc file...


Then you call it with...

    pkg-config --libs blah

So, since the .pc file of Art# is called...


You thus call it with...

    pkg-config --libs art-sharp
