You seem to confuse two things here: pkgconf, the api compatible alternative to pkg-config, and
pkgconf, the name of the program that provides pkg-config information to shell scripts and makefiles.
Since pkgconf's sole purpose is the replacement of the original pkg-config implementation giving the
binary a different name seems questionable.
It's like writing a make-replacement and calling it murks and then expect the rest of the world to
change their build systems. That takes a lot of hubris/ego ...

And they call the binary 'pkgconf'? I' impressed.

Who was talking about freetype-config?
