  It's not really _the_ graphics SDK, since it only supports a subset of 
TI platforms (no OMAP1, OMAP2 or Davinci, and I'm not sure about OMAP5

  We don't usually create pc files if the package doesn't provide them. 
It's not really needed, because packages that use the library will anyway 
not use pkg-config to get the package info.

  Doesn't the package contain soft-float binary libraries? Then 
hard-float won't be possible, right?

  Please keep a changelog of the history of your patch in the commit 
message, so we can keep track of which review comments you've already 
taken into account.

  In this particular case, I notice that Thomas repeats a lot of review 
comments that I've made a week ago, so writing "review comments from 
Arnout not taken into account" would have helped :-) Or maybe you missed
