Thanks for pointing out the qbs.sysroot property.  I did not have that
property set for my cross compilation toolchain.  After using qbs-config to
add the property I was able to remove my code for setting the pkg-config
executable and it worked as you described, automatically adding the
necessary sysroot options.
