(cd pkgconfig; /Users/buildbot/slave/nb-intel-osx-trunk/build/extras/tools/build/bin/autoconf)
/bin/sh: /Users/buildbot/slave/nb-intel-osx-trunk/build/extras/tools/build/bin/autoconf: No such file or directory
make: *** [pkgconfig] Error 127

pkg-config needs autoconf to build, so the real dependency is .pkg-config: .autoconf

.pkg-config needs to be added to NEEDED in bootstrap if we build autoconf (like is made for automake already)
