Sorry, no, this got dropped due to lack of time. I _think_ it is as
simple as just tweaking the Makefile to unconditionally build against
the compat/ regex library, and then tweaking callsites as appropriate to
use the GNU-specific interface that takes buf/len instead of a
NUL-terminated string.

But there may be some hidden complexities to it.
