Hello, everyone
It looks like 'pcre' is used in glib installation higher than 2.48.1 (part
of gtk+-3.0).
The problem is that unfortunately I can't update my gtk+-3.0 up to any
version higher than 3.2 due to the absence of UTF-8 and so the Russian
language support by libpcre. Higher than 3.2 versions of gtk+3.0 require
glib higher than 2.46.1, But the latter wants to see libpcre >=8.13... I
attempted to build it from the source code but got an error message
concerning UTF-8 and russian language. :-( Monyz Wacon wrote about his
experience with the same problem (see P.S.). But obviously he didn't need
UTF-8 support.

I solved this by building libpcre from sources. This version of glib
(2.48.1) requires lipbcre >= 8.13, I had version 8.21 installed from main
repository, but it didn't work (I didn't find PCRE_INFO_MAXLOOKBEHIND
definition there). I installed libpcre 8.38 from sources and glib compiled

    I downloaded earlier following dependencies:

    sudo yum install zlib-devel
    sudo yum install libffi-devel
    sudo yum install gettext
    sudo yum install pcre-devel

    .configure processed fine. How to make it build?

    Best regards
