syslog-ng depends on pcre, please add pcre to dependencies

Additional info:

# ldd /usr/bin/syslog-ng (0x0000653a46b3f000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a46a39000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a468fa000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a46713000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a4662b000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a46624000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a46618000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a4659c000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a464c0000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a464ba000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a464b3000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a464ae000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a4640e000) => /usr/lib/ (0x0000653a45e00000)

pcre gets pulled in via "net-snmp" then subsequently gets linked into all the plugins.

Can confirm this is still an issue.

syslog-ng can not be rebuilt until librdkafka 2.0.3 is released and packaged or the current release has its rdkafka.pc manually fixed.
