The VLC contribs only add its own output directory to pkg-config, it 
does not touch the existing pkg-config path(s) in case of native builds. 
So I do not see a problem for native Linux amd64.

Furthermore, "lib64" is deprecated by Linux distributions.

At least for the native case, I see no need to rework anything at all. 
For cross-compilation, it is debatable how contribs should determine the 
correct pkg-config settings.
