I don't mind, but I hope it wouldn't become a significant part of the
document. Cross-compiling is a pretty niche area for the random person
being confronted with pkg-config. Also, I've never actually tried to
use pkg-config in a cross-compiling scenario, so I'm probably not
qualified to write that part.
