Randy, thanks for sorting out the libusb-compat requirement so quickly.

I'm actually surprised that none of LFS' packages have started to use pkg-config
yet, given its increasing adoption.

My vote would also be to migrate it over to LFS, putting it in its rightful place
in the alphabetical build order until such time that an LFS package requires it.
