Lilypond tries to be creative to determine the version of pkg-config.

On FreeBSD pkgconf ( is being used as a provided for pkg-config.

It is about to hit the version 1.

Lilypond is the only software to break with that version because of the way it checks if pkg-config > 0.9.0

There is a m4 macro to do that check: PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG

Would be nice if lilypond could use it.
