      Description

      Subversion should offer pkg-config support so that Linux/UNIX applications linking to Subversion libraries can detect the required compiler and linker flags.

      One example of such an application is GNOME's anjuta IDE. It currently enforces a dependency on neon in its configure script, and thus cannot compile with Subversion 1.8. In any case, the build script has no good way of figuring out the proper compiler/linker flags to use, since they depend on Subversion's version and on the set of dependencies Subversion was compiled with.
