Works for me. Which version of pkg-config do you have?

Ben.

If more than one person is responsible for a bug, no one is at fault.

None. Installing pkg-config works around.

Neither of those would be appropriate in this case.

However, if you'd like to improve the error message, that would
probably be a welcome change upstream. Upstream would be the place to
propose such a change (with a patch); it does not seem worth tracking
in Debian.

Thanks for your help,
Jonathan

If the former is inappropriate, the latter is certainly appropriate.

Feel free, but note that a bug in Debian's Linux does not necessarily
imply a bug in Linux upstream. Upstream may consider pkg-config as a
dependency, or may have implicit dependencies. However, I agree that a
change upstream sounds like the optimal way to fix.
