not exactly: it indicates that the configure script was not able to
find the library-directory for pkg-config.  ncurses' configure script
looks for this information so that it knows where to install ".pc" files.

(One of the design defects of pkg-config is that it's missing options for
querying the tool for _its_ default configuration, which is aggravated by
packagers putting it into interesting places).

The configure script attempts to find that in CF_WITH_PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR,
but that may fail.
