As a suggestion, we could generate differently named .pc files, similar
to how we mangle binary names.

When Boost is packaged though, it is typically compiled in just one
configuration, so a single set of binaries is packaged and then
installed in the end user system. In this scenario there is no need for
name mangling, neither for binaries nor for .pc files.
