Does this happen also with the latest snapshot from ??

When doing a DSO build on a SunDS4 machine the (I think) final link fails with 
pcre_memmove multiply defined.

On investigation, it seems that the configure script is not setting the necessary 
defines for this platform in .../ext/pcre/pcrelib/. The header file internal.h in that 
directory specifically tests for platforms like this which may not have memmove but do 
have bcopy. But in the case where neither are found, it has a code snippet for 
pcre_memmove which it includes. As soon as more than one .c file includes this, the 
code snippet is expanded into each file, resulting in the multiple definitions the 
linker complains about.

As the config mechanisms are sufficiently complex I haven't attempted to fix them and 
supply a patch and this may in fact be a problem with what appears to be an externally 
sourced library in any event. The fix for SunOS is to add a pair of #defines to 
explicity set HAVE_MEMMOVE to false and HAVE_BCOPY to true. The compile/link suceeds 
at that point.
