It would be nice if you could split up your setup.hint file into single
setup.hint files for each of the packages.  The reason is that each
package is put into its own subdirectory with its own setup.hint file
and so you'd immensly help the uploading person...

Btw., I'd split the `ldesc's into multiple lines.  Currently they consist
of one very long line, more than 80 characters.

See what I mean?  They are handled as different packages, called
pcre, pcre-doc, pcre-devel, etc. and the names should match that.
