there is x86_64-w64-mingw32-pkg-config.exe, but i'm on Linux... The
pkg-config binary that must be used is the one that is on the system
on which is cross-compile.

I know, but these environment variables are not specific to autotools.
See this link (i sould give it instead) :

it does work :

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$HOME/ewpi_64/lib/pkg-config --modversion libbluray

returns 1.1.1

maybe I will just use PKG_CONFIG_PATH set to only one value, the one
for my cross-compiled libraries and see if configure is happy with it

thank you
