#2696: all pkg_config in /usr/lib/pkgconfig

     Type:  task           |      Status:  new                          
 Priority:  low            |   Milestone:  6.7                          
Component:  Book           |     Version:  SVN                          
 Severity:  trivial        |    Keywords:  pkg_config                   
 the .pc files are split into /usr/lib/pkgconfig and /usr/share/pkgconfig
 (usually ${datadir}/pkgconfig)

 going on with blfs some installations fail with missing packages as they
 can't find the .pc files. i fixed it by forcing ALL packages to put the
 .rc in the same path.

 if PKG_CONFIG_PATH is set to /usr/lib/pkgconfig, most packages will
 install as expected.

 the remaining are


 sed -i \
  -e "s at sharepkgconfigdir = \(.*\)@sharepkgconfigdir = ${PKG_CONFIG_PATH}@"


 sed -i \
  -e "s at pkgconfigdir =\(.*\)@pkgconfigdir = ${PKG_CONFIG_PATH}@g" \
