[Gc] libgc does not use pkgconfig

The inkscape project uses libgc in its Scalable Vector Graphics editor.
A constant issue on the mailing list and IM is how do one build inkscape
with libgc if one has installed libgc in, say, /usr/local/... or some
other non-standard place?
The inkscape editor uses more than 16 different libraries external to
itself. All of these libraries use pkgconfig and users rarely have
problems with these packages (libcairo, libglitz. libgtk, libglib, lib
gtkmm. libglibmm, libsvg, libsig++ etc). Only libgc does not provide a
pkconfig .pc file. Is it possible for you to add such functionality to
a later release?
