If pkgconfig is in /usr/lib64, it normally points to things
in /usr/lib64 - so if you move the .pc file to /usr/lib, so must
everything else.

You now can see why explictly setting libdir is important!

Same difference - thanks.

I'm not sure what the rules are concerning 64 bit stuff in /usr/lib, but
I don't recall seeing anything prohibiting it.

Yep, seen the update - looks fine to me.
