I was trying to run the Interest Flooding code
<https://github.com/cawka/ndnSIM-ddos-interest-flooding> and I got to the
part where we try to configure the interest flooding scenarios. When I run
./waf configure with PKG_CONFIG_PATH set, I get the following error. I also
confirmed that I have a pkgconfig folder at /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig.

max at max-VirtualBox:~/ndnSIM/ndnSIM-ddos-interest-flooding$
./waf configure*

NS-3 or one of the required NS-3 modules not found
NS-3 needs to be compiled and installed somewhere.  You may need also to
set PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable in order for configure find installed NS-3.
For example:
    PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH ./waf

I looked at this past thread
with the same issue and confirmed that I have the
/usr/local/include/ns3-dev folder. I also tried configuring NS-3 with:
./waf configure --*prefix=/home/max/ndnSIM*
--boost-includes=/usr/local/include --boost-libs=/usr/local/lib -d optimized
but this gives the same error.

How can I get NS-3 to find my pkgconfig folder?

Thank you!
