     2 
     3== pkg-config Support == 
     4 
     5parrot.pc will no longer be generated or installed. 
     6 
     7=== Rationale === 
     8 
     9pkg-config conflicts with Parrot's installation guidelines which support multiple simultaneous installed versions (PDD30). As it stands, Parrot's pkg-config information has been unusable for several years, but noone has complained, indicating that this is unused. 
     10 
     11=== Replacement === 
     12 
     13Use parrot_config, which is installed with the parrot system. The keys 'embed-cflags' and 'embed-ldflags' replace the pkg-config values of 'CFlags' and 'Libs'.
