pkgconfig also installs a file named pkg.m4.
aclocal needs the file to properly build a configure.in file,
if it isn't found automatically, you can specify the ACLOCAL_FLAGS
env to autogen.sh with something like:

ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /path/where/pkg.m4/is/located" ./autogen.sh

or just run aclocal -I /path by hand and then automake, autoconf etc.
