Got the following message after updating kdelibs today:


-- Could not find OPTIONAL package PCRE
CMake Error: The PCRE regular expression library has not been found. KJS 
requires PCRE >= 4.5 to function properly. If you for some reason can 
not install it, you can force a build with POSIX regex.h by passing 
-DKJS_FORCE_DISABLE_PCRE=true to cmake. However, be advised that it'll 
result in many websites breaking


After installing the C and C++ dev packages for libpcre the build was 
able to continue.

PS: is this the proper list for this kind of issues? If not, please let 
me know where to send them in the future. :)
