pkg-config 0.26 uses glib2 and does not ship glib1 anymore. And since 
LFS/BLFS tends to use latest stuff, glib 2.32 requires python for gdbus 
stuff and libffi for some other stuff ... Do note that pkg-config 0.25 
can be still built flawlessly. It can be installed in temporary system, 
then just symlink pkg.m4 from /tools/share/aclocal into 
/usr/share/aclocal and you should be good.
