In general, we have the problem that on each operating system there is a
native notion of the equivalent of hier(7) (or equivalently, Linux FHS).
In pkgsrc, we have a standardized notion, and packages are supposed to
adjust builds to meet pkgsrc norms, on all platforms.

We end up fighting with build systems that encode OS-specific decisions.
I wonder if the libdata/pkgconfig convention is FreeBSD native, or
FreeBSD ports, and if there is "ifdef FreeBSD, do this" code in the
meson control files, specifically for gdk-pixbuf2.

I also wonder if the gdk-pixbuf2 package doesn't have a
--pkgconfigdir=lib/pkgconfig (to use autoconf syntax) argument to meson,
while the others do.
