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. 

This is a routine update.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

This is the first release specific for cygwin-1.7; the only
differences between this package and the simultaneously-released
pkg-config-0.23b-1 for cygwin-1.5 are documentation related (the README
references cygport-0.9.5 and cygwin-1.7.0-45, and the /usr/share/doc/
layout is influenced by the cygport changes between 0.4.x and 0.9.x).

CHANGES (from pkg-config-0.23a-2)
o Fork for cygwin-1.7 development
o update to latest bzr development version (2009-04-09)
  This includes most of the existing cygwin-specific patches.
* Still using --enable-indirect-deps 

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.
