Sure. My point was that third-party packages won't be linking against
"GRASS", but against specific components of it, and that linking in
unnecessary GRASS libraries could have a high cost.

Thus, rather than e.g. "pkg-config grass", we would need many separate
packages, e.g. "pkg-config grass" (just gis and datetime),
"pkg-config grass-vect" (also add the vector libraries) etc.

[Having said that, for static libraries, you have to explicitly list
all of the depenendcies in the link command.]
