Yes, that helps, thanks.  My blind spot was the .pc files are in odd
places and that it needs things it really doesn't.

The CSW pkgconf should know where to look for the CSW pc files, ie
have this path coded in as the default.  The point of pkgconf is to
tell us paths, if I have to tell it the paths before it works it
defeats its point.  Doing a scan I see the CSW pc files are all over
the place.  It's a mess.
