AX_CREATE_PKGCONFIG_INFO [(outputfile, [requires [,libs [,summary [,cflags [, ldflags]]]]])]



  $1 = $PACKAGE_NAME.pc
  $2 = (empty)
  $3 = $PACKAGE_LIBS $LIBS (as set at that point in
  $4 = $PACKAGE_SUMMARY (or $1 Library)
  $5 = $PACKAGE_CFLAGS (as set at the point in
  $6 = $PACKAGE_LDFLAGS (as set at the point in
  PACKAGE_NAME defaults to $PACKAGE if not set.
  PACKAGE_LIBS defaults to -l$PACKAGE_NAME if not set.

The resulting file is called $ / $PACKAGE.pc

You will find this macro most useful in conjunction with ax_spec_defaults that can read good initializers from the .spec file. In consequence, most of the generatable installable stuff can be made from information being updated in a single place for the whole project.
