I think the current behavior is standard for most projects, so I think
we should leave the configure script as-is. I usually put my configure
invocations in a shell script, and you could achieve the same thing
PREFIX=/home/$USER/.local ./configure --prefix=$PREFIX --pkgcofigdir=$PREFIX/lib/pkgconfig
Or you could just add $PREFIX/share/pkgconfig to your PKG_CONFIG_PATH.
The reason libclc installs its .pc file to $PREFIX/share/pkgconfig is
to simplify the install on multilib systems, since libclc is platform
