Comment (by MarcKaufmann):

 Sorry for the late reply, I missed yours. I have now commented out the
 setting of PKG_CONFIG_PATH in my .zprofile, logged out and back in, and it
 seems unset. And now it seems to work:

 % pkg-config --debug --exists zlib
 Error printing disabled by default due to use of output options --exists,
 --atleast/exact/max-version, --list-all or no output option at all. Value
 of --print-errors: 0
 Error printing disabled

 The other command also seems to work (I should have included it in my
 message above, but I think the following did not work):

 % pkg-config harfbuzz --cflags
 -I/opt/local/include/harfbuzz -I/opt/local/include/glib-2.0
 -I/opt/local/lib/glib-2.0/include -I/opt/local/include
 -I/opt/local/include/freetype2 -I/opt/local/include/libpng16

 Not sure what happened or if the first time it found it it (re)set
 something that got it into a working order? Thanks for the reply, if there
 is something else I can do to investigate, let me know.
