Somewhere on your system you should have a directory name pkg_config. I believe it is in /usr/lib. The pkg_config directory should have a bunch of *.pc files in it. You need to set your the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH to this directory. Running a search on this site is bound to turn up many answers to this question, also. I am not at home, and don't have a linux box handy to verify the which directory pkg_config will be in, or the proper name of the environment variable, but hopefully this got the point across. I am sure in the install file it says something about it too.
