For testing of DPDK, we want to override the prefix given by the
pkg-config file, so that we can get correct paths for DPDK installed
in an unusual location.

Hi,

Would using "--define-prefix" allow to avoid the special-sauced
DPDK_PC_PREFIX variable?

Perhaps I'm missing something, but I'm not seeing how, since the code above
is already using the --define-variable flag. Swapping one pkg-config flag
for another isn't likely to change the flow. Whatever way things work, we
need an environment variable to pull in the path change. Since one doesn't
seem to be available for pkg-config directly, we need a DPDK special-sauced
one.

I think PKG_CONFIG_PATH is a more common and more well-understood flag
to use - using define-prefix should allow to use that instead

Using --define-prefix will automatically adjust the prefixes based on
the path:
