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?

The ones that test for any halfway-modern library.
Eg svg, imagemagick, etc, etc. Basically anywhere you see EMACS_CHECK_MODULES.

On the other hand, configure has called pkg-config ever since Gtk+ entered the Emacs source.

Installing pkg-config is a one-time cost. It took me ~ 2 mins.
You'll "never" have to update it.
Even the MS Windows users seemed to manage, eventually. ;)
So I hope you give it a go...

I have, but things have now moved on.
