mediaconch fails to cross build from source, because its upstream build
system (both autoconf and qmake) hard code the build architecture
pkg-config rather than using the supplied one. Thus it fails finding
relevant libraries that are only requested for the host architecture by
Build-Depends. The attached patch fixes the relevant pkg-config
invocations in a minimal manner. For autotools, it would be better to
use the PKG_CHECK_MODULES_MACRO. Still the patch makes mediaconch cross
buildable. Please consider applying it as an incremental step with low
risk of breakage.
