This isn't the case if you are also building pkgconfig (which is in the
released tarballs) into the same prefix. In that case it knows where to
look by default. However, if pkgconfig is installed elsewhere (say, in
/usr or /usr/local), then you need the above setting, it is true.

The notes, as they stand in the build section, are for building all the
released tarballs into one prefix.
