Originally reported as a Debian bug: https://bugs.debian.org/977819

Version: 0.0.9-4

licenseutils fails to cross build from source, because the configure
script detects the build architecture pkg-config. Please use the
standard macro PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG (which is already implicitly used via
PKG_CHECK_MODULES) as it will find the correct pkg-config. I'm attaching
a patch for this.

That same bug also mentions troubles with help2man, but this bug will focus only on pkg-config.
