What would you like to do?
trying to install irssi
$ brew doctor
/usr/bin is in your PATH before Homebrew's bin. This means that system-
provided programs will be used before Homebrew-provided ones. This is an
issue if you install, for instance, Python.
Consider editing your .bashrc to put:
/usr/local/bin
ahead of /usr/bin in your $PATH.
Some brews install binaries to sbin instead of bin, but Homebrew's
sbin was not found in your path.
Consider editing your .bashrc to add:
/usr/local/sbin
to $PATH.
You have a non-brew 'pkg-config' in your PATH:
/usr/bin/pkg-config
`./configure` may have problems finding brew-installed packages using
this other pkg-config.
Your pkg-config is not checking "/usr/X11/lib/pkgconfig" for packages.
Earlier versions of the pkg-config formula did not add this path
to the search path, which means that other formula may not be able
to find certain dependencies.
To resolve this issue, re-brew pkg-config with:
brew rm pkg-config && brew install pkg-config <--- i did this already and still get this error?
Some "config" scripts were found in your path, but not in system or Homebrew folders.
`./configure` scripts often look for *-config scripts to determine if software packages
are installed, and what additional flags to use when compiling and linking.
Having additional scripts in your path can confuse software installed via Homebrew if
the config script overrides a system or Homebrew provided script of the same name.

Please report this bug: https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/wiki/new-issue
It looks like an autotools configure failed.
Consider re-running the install with '-vd' to keep 'config.log' around:
brew install -vd irssi
Gist 'config.log' and any error output when reporting an issue.
Remember to include your config information: brew --config
Also try:
`brew doctor` to check your setup for common problems.
`brew missing` to check installed packages for missing deps.
