I agree.

I don't have such script, but I suppose that all of pkg-config can be
implemented in awk or in shell+grep. That would be suckless.

Provided that does not provide many needed tools, and that
writing suckless code to replace everything that actually needs
replacement takes long, I gather that such suckless pkg-config should
happen. More so if it can replace tools that suck even more, like
GNU autocrap.
