Software is Crap

Multiple pkg-config incarnations?

Why the heck does ftp.gnome.org host (apparently two strains of) pkg-config?

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pkg-config/ (version 0.18 and 0.19)

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pkgconfig/ (version 0.8 through 0.18, though skipping 0.10)

It’s irresponsible to host out-of-date versions like that, as if pkg-config was part of the Gnome project and didn’t exist independently. At least put a README or something which mentions that this is a possibly-out-of-date mirror!

The real pkg-config distribution is here:

http://pkg-config.freedesktop.org/wiki/

with releases (including the current 0.23) here:

http://pkgconfig.freedesktop.org/releases/
