I will dig deeper & fix the problems I'm having with them so that I can always just add the right paths to PKG_CONFIG_PATH. That sounds like a cleaner solution than multiple SYSROOTs.

There may be some bugs in the -uninstalled feature since I don't think
it gets too much use out in the wild, so if you see something that
doesn't appear to be working right, please let me know. Also, running
with --debug should tell you when the -uninstalled pc file is being
preferred to the regular version.
