Utility to help plugin developers manage paths

                 Key: COUCHDB-1012
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Build System
            Reporter: Randall Leeds

Developers may want to write plugins (like GeoCouch) for CouchDB. Many hooks in the configuration
system allow loading arbitrary Erlang modules to handle various internal tasks, but currently
there is no straightforward and portable way for developers of these plugins to discover the
location of the CouchDB library files.

Two options that have been proposed are to use pkg-config or install a separate script that
could be invoked (e.g. as couch-config --erl-libs) to discover important CouchDB installation

As far as I know the loudest argument against pkg-config is lack of support for Windows.
