Just out of interest, which systems are these? OS/2? While this
question could be interpreted as facetious, let me say I am wholly
just genuinely interested in such systems - where modern FFmpeg can
still build or operate.

Also for the record, some distros (including Fedora) have actually
stopped using original pkg-config since a few versions ago, instead
opting for a new re-implementation called pkgconf

Best regards,
