Hi Al,

Oh ...
I'm not personally familiar with the use of pkg-config.  With what I see
online, shouldn't autoconf/configure be more than suitable?  I suppose
if it doesn't break the normal autoconf/automake, then I'd be fine
adding a patch.  Is it used alongside other build systems??

pkg-config is complementary to autoconf/configure, in that it simplifies the detection and tests of build deps:

there are simple macros:

and also the capability to create more advanced .m4 macros, as we did for NUT:

Jim Garlick (who's also a friend) can argue on this, since IIRC I sent the pkg-config patch for PowerMan, used in the above m4...

And the same patch is attached for FreeIPMI ;-)
Please consider merging it.

BTW, you may also be interested in removing for autoreconf:
