The only reasons I can think of where we may want to propagate are when:

  • installed C headers (or .scm, or Perl files, etc.) refer to headers
    of another library;

  • a .pc file lists another .pc in its ‘Requires’ field.

Here the problem seem to be a link-time error in some other program,
right?  Could you post the details?

I’m asking because it could be that the problem lies elsewhere, and I
want to make sure we’re not overlooking something.
