Ok, I think I see what the problem is... I used --with-cc-opt and
--with-ld-opt, but configure still failed:

...
checking for openat(), fstatat() ... found
checking for getaddrinfo() ... found
checking for PCRE library ... not found
checking for PCRE library in /usr/local/ ... not found
checking for PCRE library in /usr/include/pcre/ ... not found
checking for PCRE library in /usr/pkg/ ... not found
checking for PCRE library in /opt/local/ ... not found

I'm using PCRE2, not PCRE:

$ ls $HOME/tmp/include
autosprintf.h idn2.h pcre2.h unigbrk.h uniwbrk.h
bzlib.h libcharset.h pcre2posix.h unilbrk.h uniwidth.h
db_cxx.h libxml2 readline uniname.h zconf.h
db.h localcharset.h textstyle uninorm.h zlib.h
dbm.h ncurses textstyle.h unistdio.h
gdbm.h ncursesw unicase.h unistr.h
gettext-po.h ndbm.h uniconv.h unistring
iconv.h openssl unictype.h unitypes.h

PCRE was end-of-life last year. PCRE also has several open bugs
against it. I tried to get the maintainer to take patches for PCRE and
release one more version but he did not. There's no reason to use PCRE
nowadays since PCRE is unmaintained and PCRE2 is available.

So I guess the question now is, can I tell Nginx to use PCRE2?
