Bug Description

There is one missing library during ./config process of Evergreen 2.10.1

Freshly installed Debian-Jessie 8, installed from netinstall image, only standard system tools and ssh server enabled.
Installed and tested OpenSRF 2.4.1

During config process is not found libpcre

Install command:

PATH=/openils/bin:$PATH ./configure --prefix=/openils --sysconfdir=/openils/conf

checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for pcre... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libpcre >= 3.0.0) were not met:

No package 'libpcre' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables pcre_CFLAGS
and pcre_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

manual install of libpcre
apt-get install libpcre3-dev

Expected FIX:

add libpcre3-dev to Makefile.install job.

I saw something similar when I was working on bug 1551084 for Ubuntu 16.04 with package libpcre3-dev needing to be added. Must be something changed in the packaging for newer distributions.

Adding initial review targets all the way back to release 2.8 series since Jessie's been around since before then even.

In Wheezy, libpcre3 and libpcre3-dev came by virtual of being dependencies of libaprutil1-dev, which in turn is a dependency of apache2-prefork-dev. As of Jessie, libaprutil1-dev no longer requires PCRE.

I note that Evergreen's direct dependency on PCRE is new as of 2.10 (see bug 1468422), so I will remove the 2.8 and 2.9 review targets.

no longer affects: evergreen/2.8
no longer affects: evergreen/2.9

I've started a collab branch in the working repository that currently contains a patch updating Jessie's install dependencies: collab/gmcharlt/lp1563531_add_libpcre_dep

Fedora users may need the pcre and pcre-devel packages; I'll leave it to somebody else to check.
