PKG_CONFIG_PATH wasnt set before, so it shouldnt matter. (and it doesnt i 
tried ;) )

well i have the requirement that the target platform be nethence gnu/linux ;)
i also dont mind doing stuff from inside nethence ( i got most things set up 
to the point where i only need x to get going) and i dont want to install a 
complete portgage or another packaging system.
i tried around and i am absolutely sure that the hardcoded order in which 
dependencies are built is just wrong or that the script has a bug.

what do you recomend doing?
