Distclean is funny like that :)

It'll fail on any directory that wasn't compiled (due to a system 
version existing).  On my build it fails on pcre, since I have the 
libpcre3-dev package installed.

There isn't a way around it unfortunately... you could do the distclean 
yourself I guess - a find on all the .libs directories and all the .la 
files should be enough.

I was thinking of doing a debian package but haven't got around to it.. 
it'd have to be split into several packages to avoid pulling in unwanted 
dependencies (eg. the gserver protocol pulls in MIT, the databases pull 
in sqlite, mysql, postgresql.. all of these should be optional).

As far as the dftables thing goes I'd report that the pcre maintainers 
if it's an issue as the one in the directory is a pretty much unchanged 
version of the pcre source.
