This was still causing the AC_CHECK_LIB error here, which was in fact
due to the use of PKG_CHECK_MODULES without having host-pkgconf in the
dependencies. With this, ngircd built fine, but unfortunately, there is
still an issue.

and here, cause check-package to complain:

package/ngircd/ngircd.mk:23: use $() to delimit variables, not ${}
package/ngircd/ngircd.mk:26: use $() to delimit variables, not ${}

so we need to find a way to either silence those warnings, or work
around them. Perhaps we could simply include a patch ?

The tarball already has the configure.ac and Makefile.am generated,
they only need to be tweaked for de-ansi-fication, and a patch may be a
good alternative.

What do you think ?
