I've done a little bit more investigation. The problem comes from the
fact that the extract-strings program is built for the host, but using
target cflags/ldflags. The gtk3 configure.ac script has provisions to
specify a PKG_CONFIG_FOR_BUILD, but in the case of Buildroot, our
PKG_CONFIG_FOR_BUILD is just $(HOST_DIR)/usr/bin/pkg-config, but with
several environment variables to adjust its behavior (because by
default, $(HOST_DIR)/usr/bin/pkg-config is cross and returns values for
target libraries).

So, I tried something like:

LIBGTK3_CONF_ENV += \
	ac_cv_path_PKG_CONFIG_FOR_BUILD='$(HOST_CONFIGURE_OPTS) $(HOST_PKG_CONFIG_BINARY)'

but it didn't work as the autoconf code does not expect the command to
have multiple, space-separated, tokens.

I've already tried to override GLIB_CFLAGS_FOR_BUILD and
GLIB_LIBS_FOR_BUILD with no luck.

So, right now, I am wondering if we should provide a
$(HOST_DIR)/usr/bin/host-pkg-config that has built-in all the necessary
environment variables to return values appropriate for host libraries.

Any other suggestion?

Best regards,

Thomas
