[Mono-devel-list] -pkg command line option.

   Mike Kestner pointed out something that made a lot of sense to me.

   You know how today we use a trick in gacutil where we pass the option
-package to it, so it creates a directory where the assemblies live?

	gacutil -i Lib -package Dingus

   And this creates a $libdir/mono/Dingus directory where the file
Lib.dll is a symlink to the GAC?

   In addition to that, we require developers to install a .pc file for
pkg-config, and our compiler has been modified so when you pass the -pkg
command line option, it calls pkg-config?

   Mike realized something: if we lack a pkg-config file for say
PACKAGE, we could just reference every library in the
$libdir/mono/PACKAGE directory.
