gnu-apl depends on pcre but is not linked to it because it only supports pcre2. Rebuilding the package in a clean chroot and it will use pcre2 which is pulled in as a transitive dependency of gzip. pcre2 could be added to depends in place of pcre or pcre could be dropped and --with-pcre=no passed to configure.

Additional info:
* gnu-apl 1.8-2

Steps to reproduce:
Extract source. In the output of ./configure --help
--with-pcre[=prefix] enable ⎕RE (needs libpcre2)
This task depends upon
