Hmmm, currently only _ctypes uses pkg-config to detect libffi's header path, as it's not easy to determine without pkg-config. Is there a magic that enables openssl and bz2 outside standard paths :)

Anyway, using pkg-config is not a bad idea. I'd like to hear from some core developers. Zach, is it a good idea to introduce pkg-config for dependencies?
