So, now pcre uses the names directly above, which is the default
behavior. However, the pcre project would like to provide a backwards
compatible dll the user can use if they enable the configure switch
--enable-alt-win-dll (or something like that).

Is there any way that I can have libtool simply create a dll with the
new 'pcre.dll' instead of 'libpcre-0.dll'? Otherwise, I'll have to code
into the Makefile some commands to provide the user with what they want.
