#655 closed request (fixed)

avoid expanding variables in yat.pc

yat.pc typically contains


which is sub-optimal because if we set prefix via pkg-config, we only change prefix and not libdir and includedir. I would prefer something similar to what the Makefile looks like but in the same time we should support that someone does for example

./configure make prefix=/opt/local


./configure make exec_prefix=/opt/local

(In [2418]) fixes #655. add a helper script,, that generates yat.pc. Variables are now kept implicit if possible, for example, exec_prefix=${prefix} and similar for includedir and libdir which are defined via ${prefix} and ${exec_prefix}, respectively. Added yat-pc-check that is called within maintainer-check to check that generation of yat.pc is correct with different combinations of arguments to configure and make.
