Summary0018151: nftables package lacks pkgconfig file
DescriptionIn CRIU project [1] we use integration with nftables using libnftables. But CentOS 8 nftables package provides no pkgconfig file:
# pkgconf --libs libnftables
on Fedora (for example):
# pkgconf --libs libnftables

Another problem is that in CentOS 8 nftables package there are no file in package, which makes ld unhappy if we try to specify needed linkage option manually:
# ld -lnftables
ld: cannot find -lnftables

# strace ld -lnftables
openat(AT_FDCWD, "//usr/lib64/", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

# ls -la /usr/lib64 | grep nftables
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 20 Aug 11 2020 ->
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 692256 Aug 11 2020

Steps To Reproduce# pkgconf --libs libnftables

# ld -lnftables
Tagscentos 8, netfilter, network, nftables
