Thanks, thats a heck of a start.. sorry it hadn't dawned on my dimwits
to look there.

I found the config.log that gets genearated is also an excellent place
to look for exactly what is not being found... making it much easier
to figure out where it needs pointing too.

A tip for anyone interested is to search config.log after running
configure (if not happy with that result) for the word `perhaps'

Everywhere you see that word will be info telling what lib is not
being found.  Once you know what lib... its short work to:

  find /suspected/path/base/ -name '*lib_named_at_perhaps*'

And thereby find the correct paths to add. to PKG_CONFIG_PATH

Thanks again
