[R-SIG-Mac] Unable to find pkg-config during install

I am getting a error message during an effort to use the Package
Installer with a source copy of cairoDevice:
* Installing *source* package 'cairoDevice' ...
checking for pkg-config... no
ERROR: Cannot find pkg-config.
ERROR: configuration failed for package 'cairoDevice'
I seem to have pkg-config per locate from the Terminal:
david-winsemiuss-mac-pro:~ davidwinsemius$ locate pkg-config
The UNIX Appendix of the Installation Manual (p 29) says: "Mac OS X
comes with none of these libraries, but cairo support has been added
to the binary distribution: pkg-config is still needed and can be
compiled from the sources. "
But that is not particularly helpful to me. Is there some environment
variable or path has not been defined properly? I tried downloading
pkgconfig-0.18 but its README file is not sufficiently detailed for my
level of understanding of the UNIX underbelly of Mac OS X.
