zlib, pcre, uuid, and gnutls can be updated to search pkg-config, but gcrypt 
and gpg-error cannot because the upstream there is being pig-headed.

plus, requiring .pc files from these libs would imply a recent version for some 
since many haven't started providing them until recently.

i don't personally have a problem requiring information to be provided by .pc 
files when the respective projects have started offering them in recent 
versions, but others might.  and seeing as how i'm not the maintainer, i don't 
get to make the final decision.

lemme know which way you want to go, and i can send out an update that also 
checks for zlib/pcre/uuid/gnutls via pkg-config.
