 Since a good fundamental solution will take some time to flesh out, and since
the autobuilders are exploding because of this, it's a great proposal.

 However, shouldn't it be --enable-usbdropdir=/usr/lib/pcsc/drivers? DESTDIR is
still prepended to it, no?

 Put something like this in the commit message:

Since the bump to 1.5.3, pkgconf prepends the sysroot to all absolute paths
found in the .pc file. This is correct when the paths refer to something in
STAGING_DIR (e.g. libdir, includedir), but not when it refers to something used
for the target.

ccid uses the usbdropdir variable from libpcsclite.pc to decide where to install
things. Since DESTDIR is prepended to the install destination, this will end up
in the wrong location.

Until a better solution is found in pkgconf, pass the usbdropdir to use
explicitly instead of relying on libpcsclite.pc.

 BTW, is the libva issue similar?
