Comment(by richard):

 I'm not sure what "direct pkgconfig support" would actually consist of.
 Is it just a pkg-config configuration file that needs to be generated and
 distributed?  I can't see clear documentation of how to add support to a
 library on http://pkg-config.freedesktop.org/wiki/

 I confess that I thought pkg-config had pretty much died, but maybe I've
 just not been moving in the circles that use it recently.  I'd be
 interested to know if there is some reason that pkg-config support better
 than the current xapian-config script (and associated xapian.m4 macro).
