    7878=== Disabling the use of pkg-config ===
    7979
    80 With !BuildTools 0.6, some COIN-OR projects make use of pkg-config to communicate compiler and linker flags between projects.
    81 While we hope to reach better independence of projects and allow building a project against installed versions of other projects, these major changes come with children diseases that may not have all been eliminated by now.

    83 Thus, if you have the impression that building a project may have failed due to a bug in setting up the correct compiler flags to locate header files or dependent libraries, then '''submitting a ticket''' would be very helpful.
    84 Additionally, you may try to disable the use of pkg-config by specifying the option
     81On CYGWIN, if you have a non-CYGWIN version of pkg-config in your path, especially if it is installed in a location with spaces in the path, this can cause some output that may look problematic, though configuration still goes through and the build should work. In this case, it is recommended that you disable the use of pkg-config by specifying the option

    8885to configure. Note that pkg-config configuration files ({{{pkg.pc}}}) are still created and are also used by configure. The {{{--disable-pkg-config}}} option just switches from the use of pkg-config to a shell-scripting based parsing of COIN-OR's {{{pkg.pc}}} files.

    90 By disabling pkg-config, features like building a project against installed versions of other projects are not available anymore.
