I'm using some other options too, maybe there is an unforseen
side effect, this is a failed build:

The configure detects PCRE but compilation fails.  It appears to me that
the detection of PCRE is not propogated to the compilation or the
#include isn't munged appropriately or something along those lines is
not correctly fixed.

I changed the build to effectively have:

    --with-cc-opt=$(pcre-config --cflags) and we have a success

Please let me know if I should have done this in a different manner.
