Hrm, I have to check the cross-compiling support again since I'm sure it
worked flawlessy last time I did this type of work.

Well, I used a modified pkg-config ebuild at the time (which I should
still have laying around, if I I find it I'll see to merge in the recent
changes and see that it gets into main tree), ut I don't remember
needing to change the source code at all. So unless they broke it
recently (which I wouldn't exclude) I'd expect it to work.

[I have routing troubles right now so I'm unable to access fd.o, I'll
call my ISP and doublecheck.]

But I remember not having to fight with pkg-config, and rather saved me
more time than other things did, like libtool. (Which by the way reminds
me I have to push again for the dependency information to be properly

I don't think I have my last build environment around, but I should have
the script to regenerate it, I'll check if there are regressions in
there; I had to leave this in my TODO list for too long time :/
