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.

CHANGES since 0.23a-1
* update to latest bzr development version (2008-05-14)
   This should fix the coredump problem reported here
   by Damon Register
* Still using --enable-indirect-deps
* fix packaging bug in -src package

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.
