[blfs-dev] Support for old LFS versions

Hi all,

Going through the book I noticed that many of the pkgconfig dependencies
have been removed/commented out. I commented out the remaining ones. Armin
brings up a good point about supporting past versions of LFS as well as
current trunk.

I think it would be difficult to support past versions (from so long ago)
without some breakage. I'd like to discuss this. As far as pkgconfig goes,
I know it was in and out of LFS for a period of time. What versions of LFS
do not include pkgconfig?
