This is not directly related but I once spent some time trying to satisfy pkg-config dependencies on Windows. This is what I ended up with: https://github.com/input-output-hk/cardano-node/blob/8bb0d2322d81bb9e73553f5823af7d307910369d/doc/getting-started/building-the-node-on-windows.md

In particular you can install pkg-config with \`choco install pgkconfiglite\` using chocolatey package manager.

Best regards,
Marcin Szamotulski
