Multiple versions are indeed an issue. I don't know if the systemd folks have
a suggestion for that case. But as far as I understand the recommendation is
indeed to install unit files to the directory given by pkg-config.
The installation directory can of course be changed and you could simply point
it elsewhere and then have the user copy the unit file she wants.
