Hi Babis,

My installation problems on Darwin are  solved now. The main cause for all problems was a missing pkg-config package on Darwin. This package is not installed on Darwin. I think Darwin uses a utility named pkgutil. I think the configure script should check for the pkg-config installation because the current error message (possibly-undefined-macro:-AC_MSG_ERROR) is not very helpful.

In short I solved the problems by:
- installing pkg-info package (0.25)
- Made pkg.m4 from this package visible by copying to buildtools/conf or adding directory to M4DIRS search path
- Make sure that all <package>.pc file are visible by setting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH

Jan Flokstra.
