That is boilerplate text from pkg-config [1]: you cannot say that pango
is broken when it has very little to do with your issue.

There is no magic involved here: `{$MODULE}_CFLAGS` overrides the output
of `pkg-config --cflags {$MODULE}` while `{$MODULE}_LIBS` overrides the
output of `pkg-config --libs {$MODULE}`. No idea what your real issue is
but keep in mind `PKG_CONFIG_PATH` is a `:` separated list of folders
where `.pc` files reside, not the path to `pkg-config`. The latter can
be specified explicitely with `PKG_CONFIG`.
