    Description

      I've seen a few reports like https://github.com/apache/arrow/issues/7055, where the user reports that they've installed the arrow system packages, we can see that they exist, but pkg-config reports that it doesn't have them. I think this is because -larrow_dataset isn't found. As the output on that issue shows, while arrow core headers and libraries are there, arrow_dataset is not.

      Searching through the packaging scripts (such as https://github.com/apache/arrow/blob/master/dev/tasks/linux-packages/apache-arrow/yum/arrow.spec.in), while there is some metadata about a dataset package, I see that ARROW_DATASET=ON is not set anywhere, so I don't think we're building it. So apparently we are building it, but we aren't documenting how to get it.
