Well :-)

Just install PCRE on its own, i. e. unpack it, configure it, compile it,
install it. It's easier than a first-time leafnode installation. Some
systems may require an additional ldconfig after installation. After you
installed PCRE, remove config.cache and run ./configure again in
leafnode's directory.

The ma version uses automake. I'm not aware that automake depends on GNU
make, I'll however take a look and see where these GNU-isms come from
and if they are generated by automake or originate in my Makefile.am. 

I will have FreeBSD 4.2 back up and running in a couple of hours, but I
can't promise I'll manage to look after this before Dec. 27th.

Thanks for your feedback.
