This is asking your system to search through your entire directory tree for the missing file. Let's say you find the file in /usr/local/bin . If so you would configure Xine like this:

./configure PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/bin"

You're passing the path of the file to ./configure, and notice the double quotation marks (""). Once you've got the path correct Xine should compile with few problems.

Once Xine is installed it's worth running xine-check to get some idea of how things went. Xine is a very stable program which I admire, but there are some minor things which will cause it to fail! It's a very good idea to read the documentation here.
Man, you are a genius, I spent almost 5 hours researching about this problem, and nothing of the many other suggestions worked for me but yours.

in my case the solution was the command:

sudo ./configure PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig"

which fixed my installation.
