Dear friends,
I am cross compiling with Autotools and I use PKG_CHECK_MODULES macro in
However, some unknown thing has to be done that I am not aware of, since
if I check for x11, I have positive response when I run 
./configure --prefix=/usr --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu 
./configure --prefix=/usr/i486-mingw32 --host=i486-mingw32
(the results of the latter ./configure result in a compilation error
later since the compiler is not able to find anything that pkg-config
macro returned)
There should be a mention about this in the manual or in the wiki, if
you tell me, I can write something there with great joy.
