One further comment that I forgot...

I'm slighly uneasy about the use of <pcre.h> instead of "pcre.h" in
various #includes, because it relies on the presence of -I. on the
compile line. I know that autoconf takes care of this automatically, but
when people are compiling PCRE "by hand" - and some do: I had a message
only a week or so ago from someone who built it on Windows without using
./configure etc - they may get caught. I have, nevertheless, left
<pcre.h> as it is, and added a comment to NON-UNIX-USE explaining that
-I. should always be used.
