[Mauiusers] PCRE related Makefile patch for v.3.3.1 as of 072611

This applies when using --with-pcre=/path on Maui v.3.3.1 @151 

The "include/Makefile.inc.pcre.in" file encloses multiple parameters to 
a variable with quotes and when passed to the compiler (gcc) it sees 
this as one parameter rather than multiple and so it cannot find those 

   ERROR:  "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpcreposix -lpcre"

I removed the quotes and generated a patch. It compiled OK after that 
(using Linux CentOS5). Here it is.

$ cat pcre.makefile.072611.patch
