 no one is interested in discussing this, and the change was thus
 "intentional". Unless someone responds to that thread soon, this ticket
 should be closed. I will leave it open for a few more days, and in absence
 of a response will close the ticket.

 Why should the users that have reported the issue react on the development
 mailing list?
 Why do we (suddenly!) refuse to fix regressions?
 Why should we handle libspeex different from other external libraries like

 It is very easy to fix this ticket, I am strongly opposed to closing it
 just because not all developers use systems without pkg-config or want to
 force everybody to use it.
