It was just broken pkg-config installation...

Looking into Makefile.am from pkg-config-0.23
m4dir = $(datadir)/aclocal
m4_DATA = pkg.m4

Looking at configure --help
  --datarootdir=DIR      read-only arch.-independent data root 
  --datadir=DIR          read-only architecture-independent data 

So when pkg-config is configured with 
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/pkg-config-0.23
then pkg.m4 should finish in /usr/local/pkg-config-0.23/share/aclocal/ where 
aclocal does not search for it.

Anyway nobody ever tried to run ./autogen.sh on OSX - I'm happy that it 

BTW: we need PKG_CHECK_MODULES macro for getting glib configuration (needed 
for OpenPGM)
