      Description

      We have been building against system PCRE for some years in Debian now, using patch: https://salsa.debian.org/mariadb-team/mariadb-10.4/-/blob/master/debian/patches/0024-Revert-to-using-system-pcre-library.patch

      In https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-14900 Serg commented that we should use system PCRE but first find out why we were not using them in the first place.

      To me it looks like we used the bundled PCRE simply because we lacked that option or because system PCRE gave errors:

      Nowadays those problems should not exists anymore, as the use of the patch in downstream Debian packaging proves.
