Can you elaborate on that? I suspect there are ways of making this work
easily with pkg-config, but you are to vague about the dependencies you want
to avoid, so I can not suggest a way.

I have no objection to workarounds for specific known issues, of course. But
since the problem cases are a vast minority, I object to a blanket rejection
of pkg-config, considering it makes configure much simpler and more
