Any solution using pkg-config would need to take into account that pkg-config may not be available (by default) on platforms we support; for example, AFAIK, Apple does not ship pkg-config in the base OS or any of its developer tools.  And the solution would need to be careful to not break the ability to use the subset of Distutils the top-level needs to bootstrap build the standard library.  Also keep in mind that a lot of this proposed functionality is (or should be) available today by using Modules/Setup.local.
