I *am* building pkg-config as part of gtk-osx, but it is in
_exec_prefix (~/Source/bootstrap) and not prefix (/opt/gtk)

This seemed to cause a problem with libglade not finding it ?

checking for pkg-config... /Users/afb/Source/bootstrap/bin/pkg-config
./configure: line 10602: pkg-config: command not found
*** pkg-config too old; version 0.7 or better required.
checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.5.0... no

This is because of the mentioned bug of not using $PKG_CONFIG.

When I did add pkg-config to the $PATH (using /opt/pkgconfig)
the build did complete OK. So it's just something jhbuild ?

I thought the setup of pkg-config should go next to the
other setup, just to make sure that it finds it alright ?

os.environ["M4"] = _exec_prefix + "/bin/m4"
os.environ['LIBTOOLIZE'] = _exec_prefix + '/bin/libtoolize'
