I agree. We have to think this.
The version/probing information from pkg-config is useful to have, I
have no problems with that.
But the paths for the libraries are not likely going to be very useful,
neither the list of libraries (in a previous patch that I broke, we were
pulling all the libraries that we depended on).
In the C world, pulling Gtk as library requires plenty of switches for
the compilation and the linking steps. I do not believe this is the
case for Gtk#
