I've tested the patch, and it appears to be working.  Thanks. :)

In a previous message you said that I'm missing "headers" for pcre.  This
is the default state of Mac OSX with respect to pcre.  If you install Xcode
and the CommandLine tools, and don't do anything special, you are in the
situation I am in.  In other words, no MacOSX user will have pcre.h, unless
they specifically do something about that.

For that reason, I hope this patch makes it into a release soon.
Otherwise, MacOSX users who did not go through an additional step to
install something (pcre) that is not an advertised dependency, and who want
to build wget 1.16.1, will find that it fails, and they won't know why.
