Sorry, I was away and still didn't test all new

The extra-ldflags should not be necessary.
I still wonder why --pkg-config=/bin/true is
necessary: If another version (than the one intended
by the user) is found then he has a bad system
installation (and has to use above work-around).
But if no installation can be found, the work-around
should be tested by configure.
