If you are using a shared build host (w/o virtualization), it is not 
realistic to give everyone permission to clutter up /usr/include and/or 
/usr/local/include (let alone the security risk). Pkgconfig provides an 
easy way to compile using libraries installed on a per-user basis, and I 
am happy using it without the need for cross-compilation.
