Wpkg-config-unavailable-for-cross-compilation

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.6. That is the most recent version we know about.

The specified pkg-config(1) file is installed to /usr/lib/pkgconfig. As the cross-compilation wrapper of pkg-config does not search this directory the file is unavailable under cross-compilation.

Please install the file to /usr/lib/${DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH}/pkgconfig instead.

For projects that use GNU Autotools, a simple method is moving to a debhelper compat level of 9 or higher. In the rare case that this file is architecture independent it can be installed to /usr/share/pkgconfig instead.
