Oops. You set the name of the pkg-config executable to be used by configure to 
the name of a pkg-config *data* file. Where do you have pkg-config installed? 
Please point PKG_CONFIG to that file, if it isn't in you path.
And since you use a sub hierarchy under /home/policy, you will most likely 
have to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH to /home/policy/cairo/lib/pkgconfig as well.
