https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=529921 shows why encoding system
library paths like /usr/lib and /usr/lib64 in pkgconfig files is a very bad
idea indeed.

Indeed.

I'd propose to add a brp script that checks for -L%{libdir} in .pc files
and fails the package if found. That way maintainers of a package that comes
with .pc files would be forced to fix their packages. I'd even volunteer to
write said brp script.

These days we would do this as part of rpmlint I guess. But thanks
for volunteering.

Richard.
