I'm trying to build kde3 under pkg_comp. When building kdelibs3, I'm
seeing the following error:
checking for pcre-config... /usr/pkg/bin/pcre-config
configure: error: You're missing libpcre.
Download libpcre from http://www.pcre.org or find a binary package for your plat
Alternatively, you can specify --disable-pcre, but some web pages - using regula
quite limited if libpcre isn't present.
*** Error code 1
make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/x11/kdelibs3
In the chroot area, I see it:
# pkg_info pcre
