git / grep with pcre support?

Quite a few packages depend on grep to have PCRE support (e.g. freebayes).

Similarly, some packages (magit-todos) depend on git to be built with
PCRE support.
Compiling Git with USE_LIBPCRE2 would fix this.

I understand that adding PCRE support to those packages might increase
their closure size, which might not be desirable for such fundamental

What about grep-minimal and git-minimal packages then?
