Thanks for reporting this. The problem is that pkg-config doesn't have
any explicit support for cross compilation, so we have to guess if a
given variable refers to a target path or a host path. For this specific
problem you could work around it by passing an explicit
--with-fontrootdir=/usr/share/fonts/X11 to the configure step of the
xfonts packages, but I have fixed pkg-config in git to only prepend the
sysroot location when the includedir + libdir variables are requested,
and not all variables like we did for 2011.02:


Bye, Peter Korsgaard
