IMO, guile-1.8.pc is only provided by the guile-1.8 package. 1.8 and 2.0
are parallel-installable. Technically, we should be installing
guile-2.0.pc now.

I think this is a bad idea. Only Guile 1.8 should claim to be Guile 1.8.

Packages that can compile against either need to select their version in
their GStreamer-depending apps did this successfully in
their transitions (0.{6,8,10}).
