It is because wayland-scanner.pc is arch-independent, while others are
arch-dependent and may be installed in different libdir (e.g. /usr/lib
or /usr/lib64) under multilib environment.  By default, pkg-config looks
for datadir/pkgconfig as well as libdir/pkgconfig.

Yes, it needs to be added if you are using custom buildroot.  Actually,
jhbuild does that automatically:

$ jhbuild run sh -c 'echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH'
