pkg-config doesn't depend on glib. It comes with it's own copy of
glib-1.2 but you shouldn't have to worry about that. Then, glib
doesn't actually depend on pkg-config. configure only checks for it's
presense since we think that pkg-config should be installed when glib
is installed. This is just a convenience check to catch problems
early. pkg-config is not used at all during the glib build process.

Whatever, pkg-config is just a build tool. It doesn't need to be
present on the target platform and it should not be a problem to
install pkg-config on the build host (especially since it comes
packaged with all distributions).
