Well, but really they want to look in $(gnome_libs_prefix) AND in each
component of $GNOME_PATH. Given that someone else commented on certain
functions searching $(gnome_libs_prefix) but ignoring GNOME_PATH,
maybe it would be best to not let pkg-config tell you gnome-libs's
prefix, but instead have a gnome-libs function that searches for
files/paths in each of the possible directories (its own compiled-in
prefix, plus the GNOME_PATH paths), and make people use that to make
sure that future functions don't require installing things into
gnome-libs's prefix.
