Why is pkg-config a requirement on OSX?

Are you sure it is needed for building Emacs, and not just for running
autogen.sh/aclocal in order to produce the configure script when
building out of the repository?

It is requred for that also, but pkg-config is run in configure also.

The latter is indeed new, and is because configure.ac now calls a
macro that is defined by pkg.m4, which comes with pkg-config.

Yes, I saw those undefined macros (I think it was three) when trying to build without pkg-config after tweaking autogen.sh.

I built pkg-config from source, but having pkg-config as a requirement form some macros must mean those macros are important. What are they?
