[SOLVED] Please explain pkg-config 32 bit and 64 bit differences

The package  pkg-config-0.29.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz  contains the following file:
/usr/bin/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu-pkg-config
while the package pkg-config-0.29.1-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz contains the following one:
/usr/bin/i686-pc-linux-gnu-pkg-config

Why is there that *unknown* vs. *pc* difference?

The reason I'm asking is that my d1x-rebirth package won't build now on 64 bit, because it tries to run this file:
/usr/bin/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-pkg-config

I'm not sure, for me that seems so that pacman is now compiled with the x86_64-pc-linux-gnu triplet. One more reason I start to think that the pkg-config package should contain the /usr/bin/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-pkg-config file. But TBH I don't know how the filename is generated. The d1x-rebirth scons script generates the name like this:

os.environ['CHOST']

It likely should, the current package is from before the switch.

Re: [SOLVED] Please explain pkg-config 32 bit and 64 bit differences

After some googling and readings in the wiki I came up with this workaround:

In /etc/makepkg.conf in changed the CHOST variable to:
CHOST="x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu"

This way I was able to build d1x-rebirth. My question is, does this method have any drawbacks?

Yes...  everything requiring it to be "x86_64-pc-linux-gnu" will be broken...    Either rebuild pkg-config or give me a couple of hours to do it.
