First lets see configure script:
AC_ARG_ENABLE(pkgconfig, [ --enable-pkgconfig ...
if test "z$enable_pkgconfig" = "zno" ; then
if test "z$with_libxml" = "zno" -o "z$with_libxml_src" = "zno"; then
elif test "z$with_libxml_src" != "z" ; then
elif test "z$with_libxml" = "z" -a "z$PKG_CONFIG_ENABLED" = "zyes" ; then
My version of pkg-config in 0.23 and in this version macro
PKG_CHECK_MODULES require PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG.
The macro PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG check for pkg-config tool and set variable
The issue is that macros are expended in last elif block and if one of
test (conditions ) before succeed code from PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG is never
executed so variable PKG_CONFIG left empty.
Work-around is to set PKG_CONFIG on configure command line or as env.
One of possible fixes is to rewrite if test "z$enable_pkgconfig" block
to set PKG_CONFIG variable.
Other is to rewrite block and to add macro PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG. I don't
know which version pkg package add this macro.
Also I'm not sure that line "if ! pkg-config --atleast-pkgconfig-version
0.9 ; then"
work well on unix shells. This character "!" could be issue for some old
unix shells as example solaris 8.
