This type of problem is caused by a dependency already installed on your
system is good enough so the buildlinking is not done. See below.

What does the following tell us?
pkg_info -n gtk2+ | egrep 'Information|glib'
pkg_info -n glib2 | egrep 'Information|pcre'
The pcre buildlink was included on 08-Nov-07 but the dependency was not
bumped. This was done during the update to 2.14.3.
This has been reported (not including my own similar reports):
My recommendation is to abuse BUILDLINK_API_DEPENDS.glib2 for this. See my

(I has posted about this other times also, but never received any answer
to this ongoing problem.)
