 If this works for you, it's not a problem of this code fragment, but
 problem(s) of package_add(), package tarball itself, or whole archive.
 package_add("postfix") should install pcre package also iff the
 postfix package is built without WITHOUT_PCRE.
 You've said that "installation goes wrong," but you didn't mention
 what's really happened.  Would you please describe more clearly?
