So sounds like the debian schroot doesn't add pkg-config by default.
I've checked and pkg-config is mentioned as required in the build
documentation. Is there something more you think we can do to avoid
this type of problem for others in the future?

Looking at bootstrap.conf it looks like it might be good to add a line
to the $buildreq variable with "pkg-config -". Would you recreate your
schroot which causes the failure (ie no pkg-config), then modify
bootstrap.conf and see if it fails with the messages "Error:
'pkg-config' not found" and "Please install the prerequisite programs"?
And then install pkg-config and verify that the bulid works as expected?

If all that works, could you send a patch to the list? (I can do it
also if you wish and add you as tested-by). I think this should prevent
this confusion in the future.
