at the moment it's not easy to use SHELL with pkg-config, like this:

   LIBXML_INCLUDES = [ SHELL "pkg-config --cflags libxml-2.0" ] ;

because pkg-config outputs a trailing newline, and then

apparently does not work. Unix shell, when it process command substitution,

       `pkg-config --cflags libxml-2.0`

removes trailing newline. I wonder if we should do the same in SHELL?
