Why modified? And even if you ship prce, which is reasonable, it would
be nice to compile GLib gainst an external pcre; on systems where it
is available to compile it into GLib as well would be a waste (I think
e.g. Debian guys would prefer the external linkage, because of the
disk space and RAM waste, plus the pcre shipped with GLib might become
out of date).
