Wrong prefix in pkgconfig files

See original GitHub issue

As a follow up of the previous pkg-confing issue, I’ve noticed that in the installed pc files the prefix is hardcoded to “/home/qt/work/install” rendering them unusable.

As a workaround I run this sed on Linux and everything builds fine now: for file in $(ls $Qt5_DIR/lib/pkgconfig/*); do sed -i "s|^prefix=.*|prefix=$Qt5_DIR|" $file; done;

I’m running the job on ubuntu-latest.

I have closed miurahr/aqtinstall#560 because of this:

Note that if you run the above grep commands on Qt installations installed by aqtinstall and by the official GUI installer, you get the same output. In this regard, the lib/pkgconfig/*.pc files installed by aqtinstall are identical to those installed by the official GUI installer.

I’m certain that this was a problem with aqtinstall at the time this issue was created, but as far as I can tell, it is now fixed. Please feel free to prove me wrong.

On a Mac host:

$ python -m aqt version
INFO    : aqtinstall(aqt) v2.2.2 on Python 3.9.13 [CPython Clang 13.1.6 (clang-1316.0.21.2)]
$ python -m aqt install-qt mac android 5.15.2 android
... output ...
$ grep prefix="/home/qt/work/install" 5.15.2/android/lib/pkgconfig/* | wc -l
$ rm -rf 5.15.2
$ python -m aqt install-qt linux android 5.15.2 android
... output ...
$ grep prefix="/home/qt/work/install" 5.15.2/android/lib/pkgconfig/* | wc -l

The pkgconfig/*.pc files are all patched properly for same-platform installations, but not cross-platform installations.

Edit: Same-platform vs. cross-platform apparently has nothing to do with it: On Mac, the default prefix string is /Users/qt/work/install, and for some reason it is not being patched.

$ python -m aqt install-qt mac android 5.15.2 android
... output ...
$ grep prefix="/Users/qt/work/install" 5.15.2/android/lib/pkgconfig/* | wc -l

I’m going to open a separate issue for this at aqtinstall.
