Argh. Reading the -devel mesg you linked to, I take it that
this software is using stuff which is not exposed in libpcre
as a public function.
The correct solution would be for the upstream software to
be adjusted such that
a) it did not use bits of pcre that are not exposed in the library
b) it was feasible to link to an external pcre (perhaps by default)
