    bin/install-qa-check.d: drop QA_PKGCONFIG_VERSION checks from 60pkgconfig
    
    They've been too noisy. We can consider restoring this with an opt-in
    check (perhaps by setting QA_PKGCONFIG_VERSION) in future.

See https://bugs.gentoo.org/857654#c1. This check has been dropped in portage-3.0.35 because of false positives, usually relating to SONAME versioning not corresponding to ${PV}.

It may be restored at a later time in an opt-in fashion (either for users/developers to set in e.g. make.conf, or for ebuilds to enable when upstream is known to make errors (possibly could be by setting QA_PKGCONFIG_VERSION?)).

Apologies for the noise until now. It was an experiment and while some legitimate bugs were found, it was too noisy and that's unfair to developers.
