pkg-config usage for sqlite3

It looks like building a static binary doesn't work with the sqlite3 
option, due to a couple extra dependencies needed in that case.

One common, and increasingly prevalent, solution is to use pkg-config 
and the related autoconf macros (e.g. PKG_CHECK_MODULES).  However, this 
isn't without issues, for example dealing with libraries installed in 
non-standard places.

What do you all think about using pkg-config for the sqlite3 dependency? 
Experiences and tips on doing this properly are welcome.

Thank you.
