Description of problem:
The main PHP package is dynamically linked to pcre, and indeed has a pcre-devel
BuildRequires, but does not have a corresponding Requires:. This means if you
install php without pcre installed, running "php" from the command line results
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
php-5.0.5-6 (rawhide) appears by visual inspection of the spec to have the same
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install php
2. rpm -e --nodeps pcre
php: error while loading shared libraries: libpcre.so.0: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory

The shared library dependency is picked up automatically as it should be.
$ rpm -q --requires php | grep pcre
You are, of course, right. My bad, sorry!
