Hi Markus,
  the debian package of pcre-ocaml does not built on some architectures
(e.g. hppa) due to a missing -fPIC flag which is not passed to the C
compiler while compiling pcre_stubs.o. You can find a full build log
exhibiting the problem here:


AFAICT the bug is in OCamlMakefile which fails to pass PIC_CFLAGS when
inovking ocamlmklib. I thus suppose that adding "-ccopt -fPIC" in the
"$(DLLSONAME)" rule would be enough. Still, since I don't know
OCamlMakefile in detail I ask your advice on this.

Full bug report of the debian user who reported the problem (Cc-ed) is
available here:


Thanks in advance.
