This could be a barrier to cross-compilation.

Background (I'm sure Kevin knows this ...):

It's generally a good idea for *-config programs to be scripts,
because you need to run them during the build process, and that fails
if it's a native program and you're cross-compiling.  The exception is
pkg-config, since it can be configured to do the right thing by
setting some environment variables.
