Did you rerun the autogen.sh script after installing pkg-config and
before launching configure?

I'm not overly familiar with ubuntu et similia, however I installed
ubuntu server 14.04.1 on a vm and got it working like this:

sudo apt install build-essential autoconf libtool pkg-config libusb-dev
cd /path/to/nut_source_dir/
./configure \
    --without-all \
    --without-ssl \
    --with-usb \
    --with-drivers=nutdrv_qx \
    --sysconfdir=/etc/nut \
    --with-drvpath=/lib/nut \
    --with-statepath=/var/run/nut \
    --with-altpidpath=/var/run/nut \
    --with-pidpath=/var/run/nut \
    --datadir=/usr/share/nut \
    --with-udev-dir=/lib/udev \
    --with-systemdsystemunitdir=/lib/systemd/system \
    --with-user=nut \

(well, probably that configure line can be shrunk a little..)

Provided that you have already installed and configured the nut-server
package, you can simply launch the driver:
sudo /path/to/nut_source_dir/drivers/nutdrv_qx -a ups_name -DDD

Hope this helps.
