Is Your case actual?
Comment 2 Denis Silakov 2014-06-10 01:13:31 MSD
This is expected behavior, we decided not to split devel files of pcre into separate subpackages; this doesn't make much sense, in any case you will have to install all header files. So libpcre-devel intentionally contains links to files from different packages (and requires them).
