this changes in configure introduced bug in Alpine linux builders
because they don't have /usr/lib/pkgconfig dir by default.

Here is part of  ./configure log:
checking for long file names... yes
checking if you want to use pkg-config... yes
checking for x86_64-alpine-linux-musl-pkg-config... no
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for /usr/bin/pkg-config library directory... checking for first 
directory... none
checking if we should install .pc files for /usr/bin/pkg-config... yes
configure: error: expected a pathname, not ""
>>> ERROR: ncurses: build failed
>>> ncurses: Uninstalling dependencies...

Our configure is run with these otions:
./configure \
    --build=$CBUILD \
    --host=$CHOST \
    --mandir=/usr/share/man \
    --without-ada \
    --without-tests \
    --disable-termcap \
    --disable-rpath-hack \
    --disable-stripping \
    --with-pkg-config-libdir="/usr/lib/pkgconfig" \
    --without-cxx-binding \
    --enable-pc-files \
    --with-shared \

We can build 6.2-20211017 release by copying configure script from
6.2-20211009 release but we think this is not proper solution.

Do you think this should be reverted or fixed somehow.

Thanks in advance

Kind regards
