Reading I see that 
pkgconfig is required to build the modular tree, not only for developpers.
This conflicts with the goal that X.Org should be buildable on OpenBSD's 
  (or NetBSD's) base system which doesn't include pkgconfig (and never 
will as long as its license is the GPL).
Is it possible to ask the pkgconfig developpers to change the license to 
the MIT/X one or at least to a dual scheme ?
