Subject: Re: [PATCH] kconfig: do not require pkg-config on make
 {menu,n}config

> Meelis Roos reported a {menu,n}config regression:
> 
>  "I have libncurses devel package installed in the default system
>   location (as do 99%+ on actual developers probably) and in this
>   case, pkg-config is useless.  pkg-config is needed only when
>   libraries and headers are installed in non-default locations but
>   it is bad to require installation of pkg-config on all the machines
>   where make menuconfig would be possibly run."
> 
> For {menu,n}config, do not use pkg-config if it is not installed.
> For {g,x}config, keep checking pkg-config since we really rely on it
> for finding the installation paths of the required packages.
