vcpkg_fixup_pkgconfig

The latest version of this document lives in the vcpkg repo.

Fix common paths in *.pc files and make everything relative to $(prefix). Additionally, on static triplets, private entries are merged with their non-private counterparts, allowing pkg-config to be called without the --static flag. Note that vcpkg is designed to never have to call pkg-config with the --static flag, since a consumer cannot know if a dependent library has been built statically or not.

Usage

vcpkg_fixup_pkgconfig(
    [RELEASE_FILES <PATHS>...]
    [DEBUG_FILES <PATHS>...]
    [SKIP_CHECK]
)

Parameters

RELEASE_FILES
