#808 closed enhancement (fixed)

prefer using .private variable (when possible) in yat.pc

This blog post from one of pkg-config maintainers suggests that one should most often use LIBS.private and Requires.private and not their public counterparts as we do.

Our case is slightly more complicated since cblas lib is typically neither linked into libyat nor libgsl and hence need to be in public variable, iiuc.

I don't understand the semantics really, so I need to do some more reading before changing anything, but obviously if you feel you understand pkg-config patches are welcome...
