This is because aclocal is not finding pkg.m4
Now that AbiWord is building against GTK2, you will have to have GTK2, and
therefore pkgconfig, installed. The latter installs a macro definition
file, defining the PKG_CHECK_MODULES macro.
If, like me, you have installed GTK2 under a different prefix from
automake/autoconf (e.g., /usr/local vs /usr) then aclocal will probably
not find the macro defintion and will not perform the substitution, thus
the syntax error...
Assuming you have installed pkgconfig in, say, --prefix=/opt/GTK2, then
when you run autogen.sh in abi you should do it (in bash) like this:
ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /opt/GTK2/share/aclocal" autogen.sh
If this is not the cause of the problem, then I don't know what is. I know
that Hub was having similar problems on MacOS X, so maybe he can suggest
