solved this problem with "Dave2" on irc recently.

His pkg-config install was "broken," he didn't have a /usr/share/aclocal/pkg.m4
which defines the PKG_CHECK_MODULES macro. The solution is to reinstall pkg-config.

You appear to have the same problem, since the PKG_CHECK_MODULES line is being
passed on into the final ./configure script, which causes the interpreting shell
to freak out accordingly. It should be substituted by autoconf.

So, reinstall pkg-config, preferably the recent version.

(Does somebody maintain this bugzilla? should I close this? or more
interestingly, CAN I close this?)
