Checking for module 'capnp'

Package 'capnp', required by 'virtual:world', not found

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:412 (message):
A required package was not found
Call Stack (most recent call first):
/usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:588 (_pkg_check_modules_internal)

Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

but grep capnp <logfile> finds nothing

this is a fedora-26 box, with package named perhaps different than expected.

[jimc at buffy build]$ rpm -q capnproto capnproto-libs

fwiw, /usr/bin/capnp is installed (in $PATH)
