    PKG_CONFIG_PATH not working


    as the title says, it is pointing to /usr/local/lib/pkg-config
    however, when I try
    Code:
    PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkg-config
    and/or
    Code:
    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkg-config
    it still points to /usr/local/lib/pkg-config

    It is a common problem (google search and lf search) but so far no solutions have worked.

    thanks in advance
