I agree, it's frustrating that this is not happening.  There are many
reasons why pkg-config is common practice across the free software
ecosystem.  It's not perfect, but it's widely understood.  GnuPG's
continued idiosyncracy here makes it harder to work with than it needs
to be.

If the goal is to discourage developers from adopting GnuPG and related
packages, then the status quo is fine.  But if the goal is facilitating
adoption, it would be good to have a clear conversation about strategy
and tactics to do so.
