(Closes: 773266)
* Merge Ubuntu dpkg-cross fixes:
Handle datarootdir specially in .pc files: keep the original prefix
Assume multiarch if encoutering a /usr/include/$crosstype/ file too.
This fixes issues with arch-qualified include files being moved
to doubly-qualified paths.
Handle lines containing '${exec_prefix}/bin' specially in .pc files;
these are normally development tools, so should keep the original
(build arch) prefix.  (For example, orbit_idl in ORBit-2.0.pc.)
