Libperconaserverclient21-dev doesn't ship mysqlclient.pc (pkg-config)

libperconaserverclient21-dev seems to not ship mysqlclient.pc for some reason, even though it is still in the source tree.

This package contains mysql_config, but some bindings switched to using pkg-config: Package installation fails after new release v2.2.0 · PyMySQL/mysqlclient · Discussion #624 · GitHub

Is there a bug in the PS 8.0 packaging?

Hi, that might be the case. I suggest you file a bug at so the dev team can take a look

I’ve filed [PS-8838] Libperconaserverclient21-dev doesn’t ship mysqlclient.pc (pkg-config) - Percona JIRA, hope that is the right place.
