I don't see any trace of it in the code. I guess it is fully glib-magic now.

No trace of that either.
Is the doc outdated or am I missing something? Is there a patched version of pkg-config for win32 with the registry access code?
The registry entries were removed a few years ago in commit dce0339 as you found.
Fixed in 454dd17. Thanks for the report.
