There is a problem with your machine.  By default, pkg-config looks at
/usr/lib/pkgconfig, there is no need to tell it so.

 From man pkg-config:
       pkg-config retrieves information about packages from special metadata
files. These files are
       named  after  the  package,  and  has a .pc extension.  On most
systems, pkg-config looks in
       /usr/lib/pkgconfig, /usr/share/pkgconfig, /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
and /usr/local/share/pkg‐
       config for these files.  It will additionally look in the
colon-separated (on Windows, semi‐
       colon-separated) list of directories specified by the PKG_CONFIG_PATH
environment variable.

Since with PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/**pkgconfig ./configure it works, it
means that on your system pkg-config does not look in /usr/lib/pkgconfig, so
it was somewhat wrongly installed.

Hi Eugen.
Making a recap :

$ locate

If i don't use *PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig* , ptlib check  failed.

So the problem in your case is that ptlib.pc is installed in /usr/lib/pkgconfig (the classical directory), however on your system it should be installed in /usr/lib64/pkgconfig. This is a new trend, called multiarch I think. We are looking into detail how to solve this issue, stay tuned...
