If you feel you have a good understanding of the problem, then just go
ahead and create the bug report. We can always close it if we don't
agree, and it's a more suitable platform for discussing bugs and
concrete features.

Why? As far as I understand, the knowledge is inside the .pc files, not
the tool itself. And the respective environment variables
values in the presence of a sysroot, so I don't see what the issue with
cross-compiling would be.
