The archives look ok but do we really need 5 of them for a 145K package?

Why not delivering cygpcre.dll and cygpcreposix.dll as hardlinks inside
of libpcre0?  As long as pcre isn't breaking backward compatibility,
that should be ok.  And the docs could be part of the devel package,
I guess.  This would drop the packages to 3 + src.
