None of the vim codebase requires pcre - be that at build time or runtime. The only pcre references are in the syntax highlighting files.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
vim 9.0.0000-1

Steps to reproduce:
- pacman -S vim
- pacman -R pcre --assume-installed=pcre
- vim some-file
This task depends upon

Version 9.0.0246-1 drops the "makedepends" but the "depends" was erroneously retained.
