To check if this is installed:

find / | grep pkg-config

This basically looks for the executable file 'pkg-config'. If it exists, then you already have it installed.

To install:

a.    Download the file:

wget http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig/releases/pkgconfig-0.15.0.tar.gz

b.    Untar the file:

tar -zxvf pkgconfig-0.15.0.tar.gz

c.    Change into the correct directory:

cd pkgconfig-0.15.0

d.    Read the README file and follow instructions. Also a README.win32

NB - the gtk library is also required for this install.

Nominally:

./configure

make install

For windows you can follow a similar process under Cygwin, or
