If pkg-config can find the libraries when run manually it should also
find them when run from configure (if PKG_CONFIG_PATH is exported).  I
have never had to use --with-sysroot, and the less it should be
necessary for something like /usr/local.

Resulting in a broken installation.  The purpose of DESTDIR is to
relocate the software temporarily into a different place than where it
is supposed to be installed – namely for packaging.  The software is
*not* expected to work if installed there.  It is expected to be moved
to the configure-d location eventually.
