Please forgive me if I am ignoring anything. I read again the thread
and yet to understand the larger picture. Maybe I just keep missing

Please explain again why not give an option for downstream to build
gnupg components using pkg-config, this does not take anything from
whoever wishes to continue to use current mode.

Pseudo code per each <library>.m4:

+if enable_pkg_config = yes:
+   use pkg-config via pkg.m4 macro to detect dependency flags
[usually oneliner]
    use *-config macro to detect dependency flags

Why does this takes anything from the larger picture?
