I don't think incdir is a variable used in pc files. All the ones I've 
seen use includedir, and that's what our helpers are already looking 
for, too.

See test_pkg_config_cpp()

This is to workaround the issue mentioned in 

This value is already fetched by some of the configure helpers like i 
said above, so I'm just exporting it as a per-library variable, 
preventing the need to do custom calls to pkg-config like that patch 
intends to.
