The thing to keep in mind is that pg_config is just a helper program. To quote 
the docs:

"The pg_config utility prints configuration parameters of the currently 
installed version of PostgreSQL. It is intended, for example, to be used by 
software packages that want to interface to PostgreSQL to facilitate finding 
the required header files and libraries. "

In order for pg_config to work the other files/libraries need to be installed.
