[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: pkg-config-0.21-1

The pkg-config program is used to retrieve information about installed libraries in the system, including the CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, and other information necessary to compile and link against one or more libraries.


* routine update to latest upstream release
* switch to cygport build framework
* Upstream release contained fixes for
  + Debian #254289, #287339
  + Debian #378570
  + Debian #340904
  + Freedesktop #4795.
  + Freedesktop #7742
  + Freedesktop #7741
  + Freedesktop #4888
  + Gnome #166537

Note that the new "private libs" and "private requires" features do not work as they would on *nix systems in this release, because this pkg-config was compiled with the --enable-indirect-deps option. This option is necessary to properly link dependent DLLs on MSWin/cygwin, but means that no library dependency is truly private. However, .pc files that use the .private options will work properly -- as defined on the MSWin/cygwin platform: private libs will be folded into the public libs list, and private requires will likewise be folded into the public requires list.
