Hi Tony,

    There was a patch somewhere for dynamic loading of the PCRE library.
    Would that solve this problem?

I doubt it.  Probably introduce new (and worse) ones.

    The current plan is to leave it as

Regardless of the pcre-config output (which I guess we aren't making
proper use of), I think we should at least provide a --disable-pcre
option to configure.  Completely relying on things like pcre-config and
pkg-config and such is a nightmare, in my experience.

    As a general rule, I think test cases that are skipped should be
    voiced as skipped and why skipped, not silently ignored as is the
    case right now.

I certainly agree, FWIW.
