As nobody has replied to this, I guess nobody who sees this has the
relevant HP-UX knowledge. I am replying just so you know the message has
been seen. Comments:

NOTE: PCRE1 (the 8.xx series) is obsolete and no longer maintained. The
current PCRE2 (10.xx series) package has been available for 5 years now.
Unless you have a specific need for PCRE1 (a program still uses it) you
should be looking at PCRE2. However, PCRE2 does not come with the C++
wrapper that seems to be the cause of your trouble.

The file mentioned is nothing to do with PCRE nor is
_RWSTD_NAMESPACE_BEGIN. They must be some kind of HP-UX-isms
