As one of the developers behind the Buildroot project, an embedded
Linux build system, I can only confirm the statements of Richard.
pkg-config works extremely well in cross-environments and solves
the library discovery problem in a nice, clean and efficient way, while
libtool .la file ands the inability of libtool to understand what a
sysroot have been dramatically annoying.
