Hi Marc:
   It's quite obvious.
   With this patch, Any package depend on libev can use pkg-config to
detect/check.
Retrieve the cflags, libs, or other information (make life easier).
   Yes, it's a quite trivial patch, but useful. And It doesn't hurts?
   It would be great if can include...
   Thanks

Dennis
