pkg-config works best if compile/link flags are fixed and listed in a file.

The compile/link flags in gnustep-make are determined dynamically instead, they are not fixed.

This is possible with pkg-config, you can reference external variables with
--define-variable=foo=bar so you could pass the architecture in from

You can have non-flattened multi-platform installations that are mounted from the network; the same gnustep-make will then use different compilation flags/tools for the different hosts (keep in mind that each host might also have a different filesystem configuration, eg, they could be sharing a network-mounted System domain,
while having different domains in different locations).

this is also possible if you split up the .pc files one for each domain configuration
then the different hosts can configure their PKG_CONFIG_PATH's to
different search orders so each machine/user gets different configurations for different.
