Would work for me as well, but doesn't sounds like the ideal solution.

Looking into the libomxil-bellagio.pc we have a whole chain of 
definitions like:

Isn't it somehow possible to let pkg-config assume a different $prefix 
while evaluating the $pluginsdir variable (I honestly have no idea how 
pkg-config works)?

That would solve the problem for OMX and make the behavior consistent again.
