there was a bad .pc file in

/usr/lib/pkgconfig directory version of the .pc file
and preventing the configure from working.

Once I removed that file, all worked fine.

apparently the debian build default priority for pkg-config

Hi, sorry for the late response.  I've been busy.

pkg-config doesn't hardcode any paths apart from the ones hardcoded by 
the --with-pc-path switch.  That defaults to 
$libdir/pkgconfig:$datadir/pkgconfig (which is usually 
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/share/pkgconfig or the same, sans 

The Debian (and thereby the Ubuntu) packages hardcode it to 
/$(DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE):/usr/local/share/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pk gconfig/$(DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE):/usr/share/pkgconfig

I don't know what gentoo does, but if they pass --prefix=/usr (as I 
suspect they'll do), it'll default to /usr/share/pkgconfig and
