The problem is that libvmaf's .pc file put all of its deps in
Libs instead of splitting them out into Libs.private, which
is used only when static linking. Stuff like -lpthreads is
only needed if static linking, and stuff like -lstdc++ is
just wrong on any system that doesn't use libstdc++ (and
also only used for static linking).

I assume this is what Nicholas is referring to.
