I never had the problem, in my previous installation (Gnome 2.0), I had
pkg-config (.pc) files scattered over different prefixes /usr,
/usr/X11R6, /opt/gnome and setting the above variable always worked.
There were no Gnome-1.4 packages though. Though to simplify my life, I
have finally settled on putting everything in /usr. If some package
(e.g. XFree86) does install .pc files in a different location, I move
them over to /usr/lib/pkgconfig.
