Ok. What does libffi.pc contains?

Weird, that matches more or less the contents of the usr/lib/pkgconfig
directory above, with the exception of dbus-1, expat, libcrypto and
libffi.

Ok. Nothing interesting here.

However here, I see:

PATH=/usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/home/mpfj/buildroot/output/host/usr/bin

So you have /home/mpfj/buildroot/output/host/usr/bin but the failing
build takes place in /home/mpjf/buildroot-bt/.

Can you remove /home/mpfj/buildroot/output/host/usr/bin from your PATH
and try again?

To be honest, I don't quite see why this would be causing problems, but
that's the only possibly "odd" thing that I see in your
configuration/setup for the moment.

Thanks!

Thomas
