If you have your environment set correctly this is automatic. However,
from your output it seems you don't so make sure you set something like:
Also make sure you're not setting PKG_CONFIG_PATH anywhere (this is
usually not the case, but it appears you have another pkg-config
installed) and if you do (and want to use it), you must make sure the
framework path to .pc is first.
(BTW: normally you should not need to install RGtk2 from sources since
it's available on CRAN).
