The pkg-config package contains a tool for passing the include path and/or library paths to build tools during the configure and make file execution.
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.4 platform.
Pkg-config is part of LFS, but was omitted from the 7.0 and 7.1 releases. If you are using a system which includes it, there is nothing more to do. If not, you should follow these instructions.
