Good point. But in this case even after dropping the check, it would 
mean the build would error out because PCRE_DUPNAMES isn't known. So 
then you would have to check the (new) info in the docs, that minimum 
PCRE version is 6.7.

Of course an #error message would help because it is more explicit, but 
I think that's not how the code currently is structured in general. If 
there is a dependency for a library version, we don't check in the 
sources whether the right version is available.
