Because clamav developers added .pc file to 20040606 snapshot of
development branch, so I guess there isn't yet much applications which
use .pc file for linking clamav libraries.

Similarly with openssl, we artificially ignore his .pc file, because we
have it included in base and are using CFLAGS/LDFLAGS hackery hidden
behind USE_OPENSSL macro.

Both were pretty bad examples, man.
