Well, I said which files are patch, so... yeah, those are the files
where it wasn't applied, again for you: libpcre.la's, libpcreposix.la's
(just noticed my horrible typo in the previous email) and
libpcrecpp.la's CFLAGS were patched, so the respective objects were not
compiled with position independent code.

I don't have the full output and I already patched gentoo's libpcre,
but the bug that I mentioned in the original email shows what happened
without that patch:
