Dear Maintainer,

When building cryptsetup, libdir is set to /lib/<arch> but then the
libcryptsetup* packages are manually changed to install in
/usr/lib/<arch> via dh-exec.
The problem is that the ${libdir} variable in the pkg-config file is
not adjusted accordingly, so the wrong -L flags are exposed.
Given it's a standard path this is not usually an issue when building
reverse dependencies, but pkg-config can be used in more occasions
than that. For example, the systemd integration test suite uses it to
check where libraries are installed in a distro-agnostic way.

A merge request with a quick fix has been opened on Salsa:


Kind regards,
Luca Boccassi
