DPDK relies on pkg-config(1) to provide correct parameters for
compiler and linker used in application build.  Inaccurate build
parameters, produced by pkg-config from DPDK .pc files could fail
application build or cause unpredicted results during application
runtime.

Update system requirements doc about a bug in pkg-config v0.27 used in
RH-7.
