Nested pkg-config macros in

looks like there's some bad pkg-config m4 macros being used here...  My guess is that the pkg-config macros don't like being nested:

checking dependency style of $(CC)... none
checking for DMXMODULES... yes
./configure: line 28374: XDMXCONFIG_DEP_CFLAGS: command not found
./configure: line 28375: C: command not found
./configure: line 28376: XDMXCONFIG_DEP_LIBS: command not found
./configure: line 28377: linker: command not found
checking for XDMXCONFIG_DEP... yes
checking whether to build Xdmx DDX... no
checking for sed... /opt/local/bin/gsed
configure: creating ./config.status


Here's the generated configure script around this area:

if test $pkg_failed = yes; then

if $PKG_CONFIG --atleast-pkgconfig-version 0.20; then
        if test $_pkg_short_errors_supported = yes; then
                DMXMODULES_PKG_ERRORS=`$PKG_CONFIG --short-errors --print-errors "xmuu $LIBXEXT x11 xrender xfixes xfont $LIBXI $DMXPROTO xau $XDMCP_MODULES" 2>&1`
                DMXMODULES_PKG_ERRORS=`$PKG_CONFIG --print-errors "xmuu $LIBXEXT x11 xrender xfixes xfont $LIBXI $DMXPROTO xau $XDMCP_MODULES" 2>&1`
        # Put the nasty error message in config.log where it belongs
        echo "$DMXMODULES_PKG_ERRORS" >&5

        { $as_echo "$as_me:${as_lineno-$LINENO}: result: no" >&5
$as_echo "no" >&6; }
elif test $pkg_failed = untried; then
        { $as_echo "$as_me:${as_lineno-$LINENO}: result: yes" >&5
$as_echo "yes" >&6; }
              C compiler flags for XDMXCONFIG_DEP, overriding pkg-config  
              linker flags for XDMXCONFIG_DEP, overriding pkg-config

{ $as_echo "$as_me:${as_lineno-$LINENO}: checking for XDMXCONFIG_DEP" >&5
$as_echo_n "checking for XDMXCONFIG_DEP... " >&6; }
