I cannot reproduce this at all. In a fresh sid debootstrap after
installing libncursesw5-dev and pkg-config,

    pkg-config --exists ncursesw

gives a successful exit code. I conclude that the behaviour you are
reporting is not reproducible in general and that you need to provide
further information on how to reproduce it. Please remove the moreinfo
tag (by starting your reply with "Control: tags -1 - moreinfo") when
doing so.
