	Very wise. I also avoid Apple's X11 for the same reason.

	Interesting. Sorry to labour the point, Dave, but are you
sure there are no old traces of an old pkgconfig somewhere?
e.g. Have you done a find / -name pkgconfig?
      Is PKG_CONFIG_PATH perhaps set somewhere?

	Excellent idea, although I propose this instead:

$ENV{'PKG_CONFIG_PATH'} = "$PREFIX/lib/pkgconfig";

since we want to force _only_ the packager-generated
third party stuff. I think this will also fix the
original problem in #970 ?

	If no dissent, I will commit this in a day or so.
