libffi not found even if installed in default path

I got the following message from `./configure`:

    checking for LIBFFI... no
    configure: error: Package requirements (libffi) were not met:
    No package 'libffi' found
    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.

I then (just in case) installed the latest libffi by hand. Its README
indicates that:

    Libffi will install under /usr/local by default.


    $ find /usr -name 'libffi.*'

However, it did not help, and the `./configure` still fails with the very
same error message.

What information can I give you to help me? What should I do to make it
