The only way this error can happen as far as I can tell, is if your
configure script was rebuilt (autoconf was re-run to recreate it) and
you don't have pkg-config installed so those autoconf macros were not

The configure script that is shipped with the release tarball will not
have this issue.

If you DO need to re-run autoconf for some reason you'll definitely
need to have pkg-config installed, and probably a bunch of other
autotools with pretty modern versions.  I would try to avoid it if your
goal is to build on old systems.
