pkg-config doesn't have anything to do with building rpms. What it does
it determine where the header and libraries are for Rhythmbox's
dependencies. For example it will determine that to use GTK it needs to
pass "-I/usr/include/gtk-2.0" to the compiler.

Basically you shouldn't have to touch pkg-config, RHYTHMBOX_CFLAGS or

You just need to run ./configure, with --prefix=/x/y/z indicating where
you want it to be installed. You can also enable/disable some optional
components with --enable or --with options (these are listed
by ./configure --help).
