The latter in your statement, distribute the most modern transmission 
that the user can ignore or if they wish or swap out with something they 

Basically it's easy. If it must be there to build the darn thing, pass 
GO and collect the $$$, then it should be there. If not, then it becomes 
an option and that is left up to the user/builder ergo openssl zlib and 

so +1 to including pcre in -deps (or srclib/pcre), basically as it is 
now in the other branches.

In reality I probably shouldn't say anything anymore as I adapted and
