pkg-config was probably already installed on your build machine before
you did 'make package-recursive' and since the ports won't reinstall
exactly the same thing again, that would have prevented it being
packaged. The fact that you have to (re)install a port before you can
make a package from it is considered a fairly big flaw, and there are
proposals under consideration to modify that behaviour -- OpenBSD's
ports system is frequently cited as an example of how such things should
The solution is probably to create a package directly from what's
# pkg_create -b pkg-config-0.23_1
pkg-config is an indirect dependency for bind -- it's required by
security/openssl and textproc/libxml2 either of which bind are optional
dependencies for dns/bind97.
