Texlive synctex library as a dependency

Atril (from the mate desktop) depends on the synctex libray. The recently released atril-1.24.0 removed the internal build of the synctex library to use only the external version. On my system there is /nix/store/i7a3ggf993ziiz5r788fw770yb36k5nx-texlive-bin-2019/lib/pkgconfig/synctex.pc. How should it be included as a dependency for atril?

nativeBuildInputs = [ pkg-config ]
to get the pkg-config utility which can consume the .pc files

not entirely sure this is correct, don’t use the texlive much:
buildInputs = [ texlive.synctex ]
