Not sure that $(HOST)/lib64/pkgconfig is taken into account in main vlc
configure. I fail to see another path for amd64 target line 390:

Yeah, we just have to wait ... 10 more years? For:
gettext, libDSL, liba52, libasprintf, libdvdcss, libdvdnav, libdvdread,
libfaad, libgcrypt, libgoom, libgpg, libjpeg, libmad, libmodplug, libmp3lame,
libopenjpg, libsidplay2, libtiff
which wrongly target ($HOST)/lib64 to go elsewhere...
Do not be surprised then, to get more critics against Linux and FOSS...
