To test the results, issue: make check.
Now, as the root user:
The default setting for PKG_CONFIG_PATH is /usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/share/pkgconfig because of the prefix used to install pkg-config. You may add to PKG_CONFIG_PATH by exporting additional paths on your system where .pc files are installed. Note that PKG_CONFIG_PATH is only needed when compiling packages, not during run-time.
