Nope. Such *-config scripts are ordinary, manually written

        Ok, thanks. Just a fleeting thought, such scripts are becoming a
more and more common convention and their entire purpose is to interface with autoconf-substituted variables... maybe the time is coming where this
should be standardized?

It's pretty trivial to make one of the *-config scripts by hand, or even "automate" their generation by making them an autoconf template (presuming someone doesn't use DESTDIR or relocate after the fact). That said, I believe there have been a couple efforts to standardize on an interface for those scripts. The most notable one that immediately comes to mind is the pkg-config project.
