Hi Gianluigi,

Sure, that looks like it will fix it and more in the style of the other
code in configure. However, it doesn't deal with the issue of the
presence or the absence of pkg-config you mention. Given that configure
relies on the presence of pkg-config, perhaps a test near the top of
configure for pkg-config and in its absence exit with a non zero exit
status would make more sense.. At the moment it just flags its presence
or absence and will crash instead at the first use of $_pkg_config
