Alternatively, create a symlink into /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ in postinst,
if one isn't already present.  Indeed, dh_makeshlibs could do this in
the same way it adds those 'ldconfig' calls.  (Well, I suppose some
shlib packages don't run dh_makeshlibs -s, instead using -p on each
library package ... but they could if they wanted.)
