There is a very common inconsistency in packages that include *.pc
files, some do Requires: pkg-config while some others dont, I think we
need to decide to either do require it or not, and raise an error when
this policy is violated..

what you think ? should it be required or not ?

My vote is that pkgconfig is a build dependecy only, and hence -devel
packages should not require pkgconfig.
