a) *NEVER* add system pathes to cflags/ldflags explicitly.
   There's great change to be really wrong here.

b) normal (non-bootup) libraries belong into /usr/lib
   (ah, and make sure that the libdir is not hardcoded, but will
    be filled w/ ${libdir} on .pc file generation ...)

c) depencencies's ldflags/cflags DO NOT belong directly into there,
   that's what "Requires:" and "Requires.private are for.

d) in case of the libraries uses types and functions for some
   depencency in its public interface, it should be "Requires:"
   instead of "Requires.private:", IMHO
