Install pkgconfig by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install
The default setting for PKG_CONFIG_PATH is /usr/lib/pkgconfig because of the prefix we use to install pkgconfig. You may add to PKG_CONFIG_PATH by exporting additional paths on your system where pkgconfig files are installed. Note that PKG_CONFIG_PATH is only needed when compiling packages, not during run-time.
The pkgconfig package contains pkg-config.
