How can I make sure libkjs builds and links with libpcre ?

I'm looking into my issue 569 about Javascript regexp breakage.  I think
the problem is that libkjs isn't finding libpcre and hence only allows
non-perl-compatible regexes.  ldd shows a big difference between libkjs

ldd /opt/trinity/lib/ | sort
	/lib/ (0xb7844000) => /lib/i686/cmov/ (0xb7520000) => /lib/ (0xb7502000) => /lib/i686/cmov/ (0xb7666000) => /lib/ (0xb7782000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb77b5000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb768c000) =>  (0xb7843000)

and 3.5.13:
	(snip 40 lines of library linkages which doesn't show libpcre)

libpcre-dev is definitely installed by the Debian build system, but
apparently not being picked up by whatever is in place of ./configure
nowadays.  I guess it might need a cmake expert's advice, so would
appreciate any help !
