OK, so we may either:
  1. always use the lowest common denominator (i.e., no pcre support)
  2. force a dependency for new features (i.e., require pcre)
  3. have inconsistency between builds (i.e., conditional dependency)
  4. include all dependencies, or re-write them natively

I agree that 4 can make some sense in limited situations, but I worry
that it will eventually cease to be scalable (we don't get improvements
or bugfixes automatically from other packages, we potentially re-invent
the wheel). We already have '3' for other things: openssl, curl, expat,
even perl.
