That's a compile-time option to PCRE.  Not a matter of newer vs
older versions.

What does ldd tell you?  If there's a libpcre listed as dynamically
linked then you may be able to just switch (provided the versions
are ABI-compatible, which is something you'd need to check with
the PCRE docs or a support forum).  If not then you'll have to
build it yourself.

2.2.8 is old in any case, so I guess building your own makes more
sense than delving into questions of linkage and compatibility.
