Ok, this also shows that the AIX package does not include a pkg-config
file for OpenSSL ("openssl.pc"). There's nothing wrong with that, as
long as AIX does not come with a bundled version of pkg-config, there's
no strong argument to provide this file in the openssl.base package.

By default it's looking for openssl.pc in the directories
/usr/lib/pkgconfig or /usr/share/pkgconfig (or whatever was specified
for libdir and datadir when pkg-config was compiled).

This won't change anything, I guess. As mentioned before, what you're
seeing is pretty much the expected behavior (the stderr output could
also be silenced by adding --silence-errors to the first $PKGCONFIG
command in acinclude.m4/configure).
