Rawhide: pcre updated to 8.13, command line tools sub-packaged
I've just upgraded pcre (Perl-compatible regular expression) library
from version 8.12 to version 8.13 in F17.

So the library itself should be fully compatible.
In addition, I've splitted bundled command line tools (pcretest and
pcregrep) to standalone sub-package `pcre-tools' and compiled them
against libreadline which makes interactive development of regular
expressions in pcretest more friendly.
Thus if your package utilizes one of the two tools, please change dependency
from `pcre' to `pcre-tools' or depend on the binary explictly. If this
is due to pcregrep, you can consider using grep with `-P' option
instead which is linked against pcre library either.
