grep for pkg-config inside the config.log (and maybe build.log as
well). I'm betting on pkg-config not being found, although the ebuild
seems to list it as a dependency. (Maybe your chroot settings affect
the path?)

IIRC another package did the same for me some months ago (sorry, can't
remember which). If it couldn't find pkg-config it would still
complete configure phase without errors -- but cflags and libs
variables that were supposed to be filled with various `pkg-config
--libs foo` outputs were in fact filled with the paths from which
pkg-config was searched for (in vain) during configuration. And IIRC
the result looked nearly identical to the situation here.
