By the way, how welcome would some more default paths be? pkg-config .pc
files are installed in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig in {Net,Open}BSD, and in
/usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig in FreeBSD. And then there are the
OpenSolaris guys.

Hardcoding a lot paths definitely looks ugly, I'm just not sure whether
it's worse than asking packagers for these OSes to add patches locally
or recommend their users to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH accordingly.
