I don't know if this will help in your case; but in general I find it 
better not to mess around with the Makefile and try to get round this 
sort of problem by setting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH.
For example, PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkconfig (or wherever's 
appropriate, instead of the system-wide /usr/lib/pkconfig) ; export 
PKG_CONFIG_PATH; ./configure; make; make install
