That change started using the pkg.m4 file that previously was unused
by Emacs.

The Automake distribution you find in ezwinports cannot possibly come
with all the *.m4 files in the world, it only comes with those that
are part of Automake (and a few popular additions, I think).  The rest
should come from the additional packages you install (pkg-config in
this case); when you install these, make sure all the *.m4 files you
find there end up in your MSYS's share/aclocal/ hierarchy, duplicated
from the MinGW tree if needed.  It's a small annoyance to remember
that, but (un)fortunately, if you forget, you are reminded soon enough
with error messages from Automake like the ones you saw in this case.

I will update the ezwinports distro nonetheless.
