I think the right solution is probably to add a config file similar to
ld.so.conf that lists pkg-config search dirs, and ship it by default
with X11R6 in there.
I've entertained the option of searching the system library path before;
some issues are:
- I'm not sure how complicated it is to reconstruct this path
using LD_LIBRARY_PATH, ld.so.conf, etc.
- I'm not sure how much of LD_LIBRARY_PATH/ld.so.conf is
at all portable/standard and kind of suspect the answer
is "none of it"
- Owen has raised the issue of arch-independent .pc files
