I'd like to propose a fix for this bug. It adds a dependency on newly
introduced virtual package erlang-pcre-<version>, which will help to
notice when PCRE is changed.

The patch also utilises ${erlang:Depends} which calculates the dependencies
automatically. By the way, it appears that elixir should depend not only
on erlang-base, but also on a few other erlang related packages (erlang-crypto,
erlang-inets etc.)

If you don't mind, I could make a NMU with these changes (the NMU diff
is attached).
