I don't know that much about pkg-config/autotools/cross-compiling, just
chipping in as tone went littelbit offtopic.

I think it's reasonable to assume that wiki instructions are pretty much
ok as it has been linked quite a lot to people who want to do

But also I think it's somewhat unrealistic to assume that Remi would
contact you on some issue taking account the history if you two
fighting about things.

I think this sentence could have been formatted in much more
constructive form instead of blaming someone of some small detail that
has been maybe missed.

The whole idea that Remi doesn't want to talk with you and you bringing
it up constantly is really really offtopic and shouldn't belong to this
list. It's an issue that need some taking care of, but I don't think
this is the place to try to handle it at all.

I know that you are reasonable guy and have empathy towards others too.
So please take this just a reminder that you are usually good guy too
and not that I'm just blaming people.
