Rasqal in GIT uses pkg-config (by preference) or raptor-config (works, but 
deprecated) to find the raptor library and it's configuration.

It's failing because it can find neither.  pkg-config searches
a standard path - see man pkg-config for the places and how to
customize it.

raptor-config is a program shipped and installed with raptor and
has to be in your search PATH.  As I said above it's deprecated;
pkg-config will be the only way to configure against raptor2.

rasqal no longer lets you compile against raptor in source directories.
