The scripts in /etc/profile.d/ do not have their related PKG_CONFIG_DIR variables set. KDE/Gnome/XOrg all have their own personal directories which should be appended to PKG_CONFIG_DIR. In addition, could include the base PKG_CONFIG_DIR settings. If this is not a valid option, a script could be added to /etc/profile.d and packaged with pkg-config
This task depends upon

I've added PKG_CONFIG_PATH settings to profile scripts for xorg and QT.

Passing on to Dale... Dale, can you add settings for the mozilla-* packages for next builds? Each should have a profile.d script that says "export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/opt/mozilla-firefox/lib/pkgconfig"

When you're finished, please pass on this bug report to Lou (KDE needs them too).

Lou, when you're finished, please pass this on to Arjan. (Arjan, not sure if you've added a PKG_CONFIG_PATH yet or not, but GNOME will need it too).

Thanks, all.

On gentoo there's a function that moves all pkg-config files to /usr/lib/pkgconfig. Maybe it's an idea to have these things at that place.
