Yes, that works. And I now committed that one line for wm/obconf/Makefile.

Nevertheless, pkg-config is still broken with pkgviews if using outside of

This is wrong.

So I added to devel/pkgconfig/Makefile.

 +# define location for *.pc files -- needed when using pkgviews
 +CONFIGURE_ARGS+=       --libdir=${LOCALBASE}/lib

And now it works when running manually.

The post-install target of making the ${PREFIX}/lib/pkgconfig needs to be
removed (and removed from PLIST too). And use MAKE_DIRS for it instead.

And PKGREVISION should be bumped.

May I do this? (This package does not have a maintainer.)
