I'm trying to install Octave 4.2.0 in Ubuntu 12.04. Downloaded the tar.gz file from

After running ./configure this is the error I get -

checking pcre.h usability... no
checking pcre.h presence... no
checking for pcre.h... no

checking for pcre/pcre.h... no
checking whether pcre.h defines the macros we need... no
configure: error: to build Octave, you must have the PCRE library and header files installed

I have installed the latest Qhull from and PCRE from

Can anyone please help me in how can I install it on my machine? Currently have GNU Octave, version 3.2.4 installed.
