I don't really get find_package and pkgconfig etc.

I use package management to install the dependencies I need.
I then include and link to the stuff I need. It'd be nice if the
linking was automatic like it is on MSVC but okay.

Why does one need all kinds of extra complexity in every single make
file for things like find_package or pkgconfig?
