You need to either install a cross-pkg-config, or set the environment variables 
correctly; see ./configure --help. On Debian, installing mingw-w64-tools should 
fix this in the simplest fashion.

By (mis)design, the AC_CHECK_TOOL macro will pick native tools when it cannot 
find cross-compilation ones... It should arguably fail instead, but VLC cannot 
change autoconf.
