Answer 1: by sinking teeth where I'd rather not sink them
Answer 2: configure shouldn't use pkg-config when building for the Cocoa QPA, i.o.w, 

if [ "$QT_QPA_DEFAULT_PLATFORM" = "cocoa" ] || [ "$QT_QPA_DEFAULT_PLATFORM" = "" -a "$XPLATFORM_MAC" = "yes" ] then compileTest should be used. I cannot see any reason to justify using pkg-config to find the OpenGL frameworks, just as it's obvious that it should be used to find the GLX library when building the XCB plugin.

Should I file a bug report or is this enough?
