FS#1667 - Replacing pkg-config with pkgconf Expand Collapse
Recently Arch replaced[1] pkg-config with pkgconf[2], an implementation of pkg-config that is actively maintained. I think CRUX should do the same.

pkgconf is reportedly both faster and has saner behavior[3][4]. Moreover it doesn't have circular dependency on glib.
I have been using pkgconf as a pkg-config replacement[5] on my machines for the past ~2 years without any problems.
