Either your alsa-lib version is too old in the build environment (you're
doing cross-compilation, right?) or the alsa-lib pkg-config file doesn't
exist where pkg-config is looking for it.

The pkg-config file for alsa-lib has name alsa.pc. Check that the file
exists in the right directory. On my system it's
at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig/alsa.pc. If I would have compiled
and installed alsa-lib myself from source, it would probably be
at /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/alsa.pc. If you're cross-compiling, the
right directory may be something else.
