Bug Description

Packages build-depending on libvte-dev currently FTBFS because pkg-config points to /usr/include, not to /usr/include/vte-0.0. This needs fixing.

Out of interest, which packages are using pkg-config in this way? Most apps just use --cflags which works fine.

Note also that a number of other packages (including GTK) have includedir set the the autotools variable and not the versioned location to include headers from.

looks like only gir-repository relies on using includedir this way. gir-repository can't use --cflags because it needs to access the header files directly, not via gcc.

Fixed in vte 0.25.90-0ubuntu4 and gir-repository 0.6.5-6ubuntu9 - the vte introspection files now come from the vte source.
