Well, no, I was saying to make sure /usr/lib/pkgconfig is *not* listed in
your PKG_CONFIG_PATH (and make sure /usr/lib64/pkgconfig *is* in there).

You don't have to list 200-something .pc files, the PKG_CONFIG_PATH
just contains the director(y|ies) where the .pc files are located. The
ones in /usr/lib/pkgconfig (if you even have them) are 32-bit, and will
specify things like -L/usr/lib, which you don't want.
