It's there - try unchecking the check box to show obsolete
packages.  But as more-2.11o-1 really does depend on libpcre,
it needs to be recompiled to pick up the security flaw.

Meanwhile, as a temporary workaround, I've updated the setup.hint
to depend on libpcre until a new more is uploaded.  This will make
libpcre be picked up even though it is hidden by being obsolete.
