No, but you showed that the installation part is poorly tested. I
mostly tested just the code from trace-cmd, and even the installation
paths from that repo. I should have tested the kernel repo as well, but
failed to do this.

Thanks for reporting, I need to take a look, or if you want to have a go
at it, that would be great too :-)

Attached is a patch for the wrong installation of header files.
For the pkgconfig, the problem is at:
pkgconfig_dir ?= $(word 1,$(shell $(PKG_CONFIG)                 \
                        --variable pc_path pkg-config | tr ":" " "))

This is checking 'pc_path' which is the search path used by pkg-config
and then its taking the first path from that list and using in pkgconfig_dir,
which can be wrong.
A reliable way to get the pkg-config location is if I use:

pkg=$(pkg-config --list-all | head -1 | cut -d ' ' -f 1)
pkg-config --variable=pcfiledir $pkg

But I will need to see how I can use this in a Makefile, will send this
patch later, or if you can find a better way before me that will be great.

Subject: [PATCH] libtraceevent: fix header installation

When we passed some location in DESTDIR, install_headers called
do_install with DESTDIR as part of the second argument. But do_install
is again using '$(DESTDIR_SQ)$2', so as a result the headers were
installed in a location $DESTDIR/$DESTDIR. In my testing I passed
DESTDIR=/home/sudip/test and the headers were installed in:
/home/sudip/test/home/sudip/test/usr/include/traceevent.
Lets remove DESTDIR from the second argument of do_install so that the
headers are installed in the correct location.
