pkgconfig: Drop automatic pkgconfig RDEPENDS
Just because a recipe uses pkgconfig, it doesn't mean that it's -dev package should RDEPENDS on pkgconfig. I can understand the thinking that lead to this but it makes sense to be able to install the package when pkgconfig hasn't been built. Currently you can also get failures where pkgconfig wasn't built yet a -dev package is included that depends on it leading to rootfs failures. I considered making this a RRECOMMENDS but it should probably be an RSUGGESTS at best given the tenuous pkgconfig requirement any given -dev package has.
