pkg-config 0.26 is out and one of the changes is the removal of an
internal copy of the glib code. That means that pkg-config now requires
glib to build. However, glib requires pkg-config to build. Hence a fun
build loop.

Does anyone have any idea how we should deal with this situation?



Brainstorm only:

Can you have glib depend on an older version of pkg-config that still
has its own glib?

That sort of "fix" might even last for years before glib depends on
new pkg-config functionality.

Still not a very clean way to do things, since you need both the old
static pkg-config package in factory as well as the new one.
