Bug Description

[revno 1001]

My environment is snv_113 (a build of Solaris Nevada, dated 20 April 2009). This includes libpcre, located in /usr/lib[/64] and /usr/include/pcre.

Drizzle's configure/make process is able to find the 64-bit library (probably because it is in a default location), but it can not find <pcre.h>. configure leaves the following in config.h:

/* Location of pcre header */
/* #undef PCRE_HEADER */

This is in spite of using a few variations of --with-libpcre-prefix.


If CFLAGS is set to include "-I/usr/include/pcre", we get a useful configure/make.

Suggested Fix


- Fix configure to search for includes more intelligently
- Break --with-libpcre-prefix into separate options for libraries and includes
