I think you may be able to hack^Wworkaround like this:
  pcre_la_SOURCES = ...
  pcre_la_LDFLAGS = -module

Note though that it's somewhat of a hack, and that I'm not sure whether
it was intended to be (ab)used this way, so maybe I should not recommend
it.  Note also that you cannot build and in the same
directory, for namespace collision issues.

Another possibility is to manually copy the file after installation.

Yes, the question is reasonable.  Sorry for the delay.
