You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 8053610. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check build-systems/autotools.
The package appears to use
AC_PATH_PROG to discover the
pkg-config(1). This macro fails to select the correct

A better way would be to use the
PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG macro from
pkg.m4 and then using the
$PKG_CONFIG shell variable.
