If what you're telling me is that there might be a .pc for a library available one
arch, and not for the other, I could argue that the same problem would happen if 2
versions of one application have different layouts under their
/usr/share/application dir (and different versions are available on the platforms),
or if a bonobo component is available on one platform and not the other

The point is that you can have arch-specific compiler flags or the
like in the .pc files. So you may need a different .pc file for each

/usr/lib/glib/include/glibconfig.h is a similar example.

Fair enough, the FHS (the exerts I posted were from the 2.2 version, the latest one afaik) would need to be updated to take this cases into account.

Thanks for straightening this
