maybe its just me but
on an average user system i would expect
./configure --enable-foobar
to work
/usr/local is not a "non standard" place to put stuff

i agree as others suggested that of course any issues with the .pc
file should be reported  so they could get fixed in future versions

about needing -lstdc++ only in some cases, ive not checked but
is this actually true or does the dynmic linker/loader just load it
automatically, making explicit specification for the shared lib case

about pkgconfig or not, well i have no real comment but i think we
should pick what works better for more people, and i dont know which
of the 2 that is ...

Breaking DRM is a little like attempting to break through a door even
though the window is wide open and the only thing in the house is a bunch
of things you dont want and which you would get tomorrow for free anyway
