I think we should import PCRE into src/3rdparty (or equivalent "qtsupport"
module) and keep it there basically forever. While Linux distributions may
update soon to this version of PCRE, Mac OS X isn't likely to get a new
version until 10.8 in 2013 and Windows users will never have it.
At the same time, we need configure to support -system-pcre, with the
appropriate checks for the UTF-16 API.
