This isn't documented (should be), but you can override pkg-config's notion
of the system include path with the environment variable
PKG_CONFIG_SYSTEM_INCLUDE_PATH. If that's not set, it uses the compiled in
defaults. That's been in pkg-config for a long time, so it should work with
the version you have. This should be in the form of a path style variable
with : separators.
