I recently moved the files plplot-double.pc and plplot.pc into the pkgcfg
directory. This files used to be at the top_builddir. I would prefer to
call the directory pkg-config or pkgconfig, but I am sticking to shorter
names, as ususal in our source tree.
If we need to add more *.pc files to the project, we will use from now the
pkgcfg directory, instead of polluting the top_builddir. Since we are now
distributing the nn and csa libraries, we may in the future provide nn.pc
and csa.pc files. Also, I may in the future provide a pkg-config file
plplot-tcl.pc, for specific compilation of PLplot Tcl/Tk stuff.
If you are completely lost and do not know about what I am talking about,
take a look at
pkg-config is a powerful tool that is a replacement for all those *-config
scripts that several projects used to have to provide compilation and link
flags, among other things. I am glad that David Schleef has added
pkg-config files to PLplot. This obsoletes complete my old plplot-config
script and will also probably obsolete Alan's plplot_libtool hack.
