Pure-Perl Core-Only replacement for pkg-config

PkgConfig provides a pure-perl, core-only replacement for the pkg-config utility.

This is not a description of the uses of pkg-config but rather a description of the differences between the C version and the Perl one.

While pkg-config is a compiled binary linked with glib, the pure-perl version has no such requirement, and will run wherever Perl >= 5.6 does.

The main supported options are the common –libs, –cflags, –static, –exists and –modversion.
