 When I make it under Linux, the pcre library gets statically linked in, so these issues don't arise. It's not obvious why you are getting different behavior.
 I doubt that hypermail should be installing libpcre - it would be hard to know whether that would interfere with other software that uses different pcre versions.

 It was used. It's unclear why any of the recent changes would affect linking. We did upgrade the version of pcre, but I don't see anything suspicious that's associated with that.
