pcre support missing for snmpd

Bug Description

  I'd like to monitor my running processes on my server with snmp. Snmp offers this feature but when you have process running like: "perl /usr/sbin/mysql-snmp --daemon-pid /var/run/mysql-snmp.pid -c /etc/mysql-snmp/my.cnf" the process name detected by snmp is "perl"... They have pcre support to be able to add patterns to better detect process name

"proc mysql-snmp 1 1 ^perl /usr/sbin/mysql-snmp"
instead of "proc mysql-snmp 1 1"

The current package is not compiled with pcre support. Could this be added/updated ?

looks like you would need to add pcre-devel as package dependency.

Thank you.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

I see a libpcre3-dev package - no pcre-devel. Is this what you are referring to?

This change should be considered for Debian in the first instance, rather than as a delta in Ubuntu specifically.

Next steps: check if this issue affects Debian, and if so then report a bug in Debian if there is not one reported there already.
