today I learned about the dependence of pkg-config upon PKG_CONFIG_PATH 
and the need for the latter to refer to the directories containing the 
<pkg-name>.pc file(s) for the libraries of interest .

linux 101 I guess.

I also had to mess around with symlinks for .h's & lib's to get 
libgdiplus to build .

Thanks to members of this list for their kind assistance.
