The open embedded people managed to get libtool to do the right thing in a
cross environment. Looking at their methods might be informative. So far as
I can tell they just did it by ensuring paths always pointed to the right
place and having a copy of the libs and pkgconfig file for the target
environment as well as the build environment and making sure the right one
was referred-to everywhere.
