Well, then you need to 

  1) replace your "BuildRequires: emacs" with "BuildRequires:
  emacs-el", since the main package does not contain a pkg-config
  file anymore


  2) open a ticket against "emacs" to report that
   is a wrong location, which ought to be

The tool is called pkg-config, the directories pkgconfig
