Since when are .pc files "legacy".  They have been the normal way for
build systems to find out about other packages for a long time, and I
think they are still normal.

Perhaps this is due to a view  that $SHINY_NEW_BUILD_SYSTEM
is the one true way and that any other software that does not
immediately change to that build  system is old - but if so I think
that's unresonable.

If you mean something else, please explain.
