Thanks for the explanation. Indeed you are right about udev. I was
hesitating for a moment as there are some architecture dependent libs
in /lib/udev. However, you are right udev.pc only covers the rule
files, and there is a separate architecture dependent libudev.pc
installed correctly in /usr/lib{,32}.
