By default it searches $0/../lib/pkgconfig,
so if you install it in /usr/local it doesn't bother
to search /usr/lib/pkgconfig .. OTOH if you have
that environment variable set the /usr/bin version
will search /usr/local which it should never do.

This is one of a huge list of serious faults in
pkg-config. I'd say 'design faults' but it doesn't
look like anyone actually bothered to do any design.
