can be seen in blahtexml-0.9-Makefile.patch


PKG_CONFIG ?= pkg-config

These direct calls seems to be quite common, if I grep through the patches available in the tree. 
Maybe it might be worth to create a tracker bug and add all other packages with direct calls to pkg-config there, if this is a problem for you?

Feel free to fix it yourself, as I might not have the time in the next days.

Yes, others do it wrong as well.
