Ok... then that file should be part of the patch as well.

However, there is a more general concern I have regarding this.

Used to the GNU world I am not that familiar with the usage of .pc files
and pkg-config, so please bear with me but... to what extent makes sense
for upstream projects to provide .pc files?  I would have thought it is
distros that are in the situation to better provide such files, because
it is them that actually have control on where the stuff gets installed,
and therefore the right link paths and include paths and the like...
