Thank you for your prompt response.

As I mentioned, the port also *apparently* fails to find pcre:
conftest.c:33:23: pcre/pcre.h: No such file or directory

In addition, by default, the port includes options I don't want, and
omits some that I do want (although I could change this).

Risk averse, I don't want to proceed without either fixing the problem
building from source, or continuing with the port, assured not to have
problems later.

Still stuck!

Can anyone help?
