Update of patch #10292 (project octave):

                  Status:             In Progress => Ready For Test         


Follow-up Comment #8:

I pushed the following changesets, all adapted from the patch posted in
comment #6 and all credited to Rafael.


Thanks for making this change.

My changes restored support for the old PCRE library so that now on systems
with both versions of PCRE installed, Octave's configure script will prefer
PCRE2 but you can use the configure option --without-pcre2 to skip the check
for PCRE2 and Octave will find the older PCRE library instead.  Or, if only
one of the libraries is installed, Octave's configure script should find and
use it.

If should be fairly easy to drop support for PCRE version 1 in the future
if/when we choose to do that.

Marking as ready for test.
