I guess Martin was referring to my wireshark upstream commit:

    Generate better pkg-config file

    Firstly, when building with autogen.sh and configure script, the
    wireshark.pc is not generated at all. Then, due to not matching
    names some variables are not being replaced as they should be.

Yes, fedora's broken because it used to generate it's own pkg-config
file as those before my patch were unusable. The commit still waits for
next wireshark release though.
