I pasted the content above into /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/edje.pc

When I issue

pkg-config --variable=prefix edje

I get


so it seems to work as expected.

I use pkg-config version 0.25 built via macport.

There is a strange character after the '0' in 'eina-0'. I don't know if 
that comes from the email client, or if it's supposed to be there, or if 
it could possible influence your issue here.
