Doing some grepping in Guix and a quick test, I think what you need to
do is set PKG_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE to (pkg-config-for-target) when
cross-compiling.  I can see that the libgit2 package does this for example

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
       (list "-DUSE_NTLMCLIENT=OFF" ;TODO: package this
             ,@(if (%current-target-system)
                       (string-append "/bin/" ,(%current-target-system)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Doing the same thing for libfido2 seems to fix it for me!

Does this work for you as well?  Let us know if you want to prepare a
patch :-).
