I don't have access to the dpkg-cross CVS. Could someone please review
my patch and possibly include it?

No, /usr/$arch/bin/ is certainly a very good place for the *-config
scripts. Those *-config scripts have nothing to do with the pkgconfig
system (which my patch doesn't support, because I didn't cross compile
any such package yet)

Yes, the patch changes mainly the "dpkg-cross" tool. The changes to
the "dpkg-buildpackage" wrapper were only necessary to ensure the
correct *-config scripts precede in PATH.
