No errors with respect to pkg-config:

$ ./bootstrap
configure.in:166: warning: macro `AM_ICONV' not found in library
patching file aclocal.m4
Hunk #1 succeeded at 439 (offset -5947 lines).
configure.in:166: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_ICONV
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.

I'm also a little bit puzzled that you ask about m4 as the exact line 'PKG_CHECK_MODULES(monetdbtools, monetdb-stream...' is already in configure.ag.
