consider under recipes-devtools the two directories "pkgconfig"

- pkgconfig_git.bb

the pkgconfig recipe file does *not* contain a PROVIDES setting,
while pkgconfig_1.6.3.bb does:

PROVIDES += "pkgconfig"
The above looks superfluous at a glance.
sorry, i mistyped the above, i should have written:

"the pkgconfig recipe file does *not* contain a PROVIDES setting,
while pkgconf_1.6.3.bb does:"

so that PROVIDES line *would* be necessary, yes? (just not the "+="
part). my apologies for reproducing incorrectly.
