pkg-config (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

On Oneiric Ubuntu 11.10 (64b and 32b).
For libraries gtk+-2.0, gtk+-3.0, gio-2.0 for example, with the commands "pkg-config --libs" and "pkg-config --cflags" the first string printed is -pthread. That involves errors during linking process.

>> pkg-config --libs gio-2.0
     -pthread -lgio-2.0 -lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0 -lgthread-2.0 -lrt -lglib-2.0
>> pkg-config --cflags gio-2.0
     -pthread -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/glib-2.0/include

Correct output for --libs should be -lpthread if needed (?).
For --cflags "-pthread" is incorrect but probably ignored by gcc and the compilation process is ok.
