I'm trying to compile vlc on my osx machine after rebootstrapping for 
the update gettext requirements.
Now i get

checking for machine/soundcard.h... no
./configure: line 22116: syntax error near unexpected token 
./configure: line 22116: `  PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GTK2, gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.0, 

during configure, even if i force -disable-gtk2.

If i understand it correctly, this means that at the moment, all 
platforms (osx, win32 o.a.) are dependent on pkg-config for the 
./configure step.
that cannot be desirable.

who hopes someone can fix this soon, because now he needs to manually 
edit his configure file ;)
