25    <para os="a">Several packages in the temporary system will use
26    <command>pkg-config</command> to find various required and optional
27    dependencies. Unfortunately, this could result in those packages
28    finding libraries on the host system and trying to link against them,
29    which will not work. To avoid this problem, we will install
30    a <command>pkg-config</command> binary in
31    <filename class="directory">/cross-tools</filename> and configure it so
32    that it will look for Pkg-config files only in
33    <filename class="directory">/tools</filename>.</para>

49          link in <filename class="directory">/cross-tools/bin</filename> with
50          this name, so that it will be used instead of any similarly-named
