You have to scroll up a bit from the end to find it, but here's the

  ./configure: line 6820: syntax error near unexpected token `0.22'
  ./configure: line 6820: `PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG(0.22)'
  	"tail -v -n +0 config.log"

This means that when your build ran autoreconf it didn't have all the
macros that it needed available to it; and that in turn is because
you're missing a build-dependency on pkg-config.  Add that and you
should get further.
