Well shoot, I was just being lazy, let me try to save you a little bit of
As I recall, you need to point to the pkg-config executable by one of two
A. the directory containing the pkg-config executable is listed in your PATH
environment variable, OR
B. set an environment variable named PKG_CONFIG to the complete path
including the name of the pkg-config executable.
Note that PKG_CONFIG_PATH does NOT point to the pkg-config executable.
PKG_CONFIG_PATH points to a list of the directories containing the
pkg-config configuration info for the packages that will be configured. For
example, using mingw under Windows, I set PKG_CONFIG_PATH as follows:
You ought to be able to adjust that to work with the appropriate path style
and delimiters on your system. Hope this helps.
