/usr/share/pkg-config-crosswrapper uses:
triplet=`basename $0 | sed -e 's:-pkg-config::'`
PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR=/usr/${triplet}/lib/pkgconfig pkg-config $@
  So, here, triplet is not multiarchdir.

It has been suggested is this thread that
/usr/lib/<triplet>/pkgconfig/ should be used. In this case, triplet is
*not* multiarchdir. So /usr/share/pkg-config-crosswrapper needs to be fixed.

dpkg-architecture can convert Debian arch to triplet (DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE)
and multiarchdir (DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH)

  Is there an easy way to convert triplet to multiarchdir ? (which is
what is needed for pkg-config-crosswrapper)
