Thanks for the quick reply, Chris. I took a look at fudging it, but it did not look like something that I could figure out how to do (without copying some libraries to different places than normal).
Did some more reading and found that a .pc file comes with a package, if it is to exist at all. So, for the hell of it, I re-compiled the program and there was the .pc file!
I guess I forgot that simple troubleshooting technique about 3 days ago when it first stumped me.
