/usr/i686-pc-mingw/sys-root/mingw/lib/pkgconfig and

$ PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR=/usr/i686-pc-mingw/sys-root/mingw/lib/pkgconfig
PKG_CONFIG_DEBUG_SPEW=1 pkg-config --print-errors --exists foo

That should give you any information you need to see. You can also
make PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR into a PATH like variable:
