It is not practical to use pkg-config for such libraries.
After you persuade the reference code of lapack to use
pkg-config, are you going to make ATLAS do it also? And
what about Intel's mkl? Or even lapack bindings provided
by Nvidia's CUDA?
One can install them side by side, but for performance's
sake, one really wants to link a particular library/binary
to the most useful one.
I know it's hard to include every possibilities. But I
prefer some configuration switch that I can tune when
building the library.
That's been said, it is still your package. And people can
always change the build scripts for their own needs.
