It's not a Haskell package, but a C package.  pkg-config is a mostly
portable mechanism C programs can use to find out the location of a C
library package, and how to link against that package.  One thing it can
*not* help you with, though, is figuring out how to install said library on
your platform.

(And all I can recommend is, don't try to use MacPorts to install poppler,
because you'll end up with a conflicting version of iconv.  Fink or
Homebrew may work better.)
