Exactly as it states:  PKG_CONFIG= ./configure --prefix=/usr .....

We don't want pkgconfig ran at all. This will let configure not use  
pkgconfig from the host.

Fixed,  Autoconf has build-aux/,  Automake has lib/   I made the  
change for build-aux a while back but I may have been looking at the  
autoconf extracted source when making the change. Added to errata, and  
fixed in master and systemd books in git repos.
