Description myhr 2003-02-09 00:16:24 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.1)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources

http://developer.kde.org/build/compile_kde3_1.html states that libpcre is needed for better regurar-expressions support in Javascript (ECMA-script), but this isn't reflected on the KDE 3.1 requirements info page http://www.kde.org/info/requirements/3.1.html.
I would have expected it under "Browsing".
