Hello all,

attached is a tiny patch suggestion to use $(libdir)/pkgconfig rather
$(prefix)/lib/pkgconfig. Background is, that current causes on Fedora
x86_64 "/usr/lib/pkgconfig" while it should be "/usr/lib64/pkgconfig".

Using $(libdir)/pkgconfig rather $(prefix)/lib/pkgconfig seems to be
common when searching on the Internet. However this patch is not really
compliant with Fedora's /%{_lib} vs. %{_libdir} handling before the
UsrMove with Fedora 17 (which can be ignored from my point of view).

Alternatively --with-pkgconfigdir or similar should be implemented, I
would like to discuss this option if this tiny patch is refused after
a review.
