There is no pkg-config file because no one made one, afaik. It would be 
cool to have one, though. ;)

It may, for example, make sense to come up with a mechanism to generate pkg-config 
files in Fedora through some RPM macro for JNI interface providing packages in 
general in an automated fashion, rather then maintaining them for each such package 

It's hard to tell for me at least without consulting the experts on packaging 
such applications for their corresponding operating system. That's why I suggested
asking on the Fedora lists.
