"pkg-config is a helper tool used when compiling applications and 
libraries. It helps you insert the correct compiler options on the 
command line so an application can use|gcc -o test test.c `pkg-config 
--libs --cflags glib-2.0`|for instance, rather than hard-coding values 
on where to find glib (or other libraries). It is language-agnostic, so 
it can be used for defining the location of documentation tools, for 
instance."
