First of all: does your system have a libpcre.a or libpcre.so (try
locate). If so, reconfigure like this, assuming libpcre.a is in

env LDCONFIG=-L/usr/local/lib sh configure

If your system has a pcre.h but no corresponsing libpcre.*, then your
system is hosed. move pcre.h out of the way, remove config.cache,
reconfigure and retry building.

If all that fails:

./configure exploded, it somehow managed to use -lpcre as a target in
Makefile, but I don't currently see how that may have happened. I
believe this is a bug in configure.in which I'd have to fix.

Could you put up the config.log on a site where I can download it or
send it to me in private mail? gzip, zip and bzip2 are fine, MIME is

Sorry, I don't have a band-aid right away.
