ah, at least it seems that indeed pkg-config fails to find the pc file

Note that PKG_CONFIG_PATH is not set and i do instead (see
https://autotools.io/pkgconfig/cross-compiling.html section 4.4 at the
bottom) :

export PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR=$HOME/ffmpeg/lib/pkgconfig

(it's in my ffmpeg.sh attached in my original mail)

thank you
