I've had a look at SuSE 8.1 and Red Hat 9.0 and hope to have found a
leafnode.spec.in patch that complains if the files are missing, without
depending on the pcre-devel package (SuSE 8.1 shipped developer and user
space in the same pcre-3.9-120.rpm)

Sort of. Autoreqprov should find out it needs pcre by itself.

The new .spec file should catch this case before untarring the sources.

Thanks for the prompt response.
