Yes, I know (I didn't mean to imply to create --with-pc-path because I
knew it existed). We probably should not do that. That was my point:
We could use ./configure --with-pc-path but that would break our
pkg-config for non-pkgsrc uses.
If someone uses pkg-config without defining the environment variable then
they will get no results (if set to /dev/null as the default).
