libpcre setup.hint contains an incorrect "curr:" directive, causing its
package files to not be listed in setup.ini, causing the package to not be
visible to setup.
Also, less, more, grep and XFree86-base will need to switch their requires
from pcre to libpcre (and then to libpcre0 when they are recompiled).
This needs fixing ASAP (both parts), because the new pcre is [curr], causing
the above mentioned packages to be rendered non-functional by a default run
of setup, due to the missing cygpcre.dll.
