Thank you Mike. I can use that -- hopefully the usage and availability
of libdir will remain consistent over time at least in mono.pc and
gtk-sharp.pc. I will tailor my development of solutions based on the
above. I guess that the next step would be to insure that
pkgconfig.exe is redistribute at the lowest common denominator (I
believe the Mono installer for Windows). I am fully aware that it is
not a problem to obtain pkgconfig.exe with cygwin in Windows, but I for
one hope that cygwin will not become a prerequisite of Mono in Windows.
However, I could volunteer to write a managed or unmanaged (statically
link for "0" dependencies) counterpart of pkg-config.exe should that
make any sense or become advisable.
