Maybe sol 9 bug or missing patch.

The system loader/linker can't find your lib. Assuming you have the .so lib in /usr/local/lib.

You can add -R to the Makefile
PCRELIBS = -L/usr/local/lib -R/usr/local/lib -lpcre
The -R "hard code" the path to the library into the executable so env variable will be needed. The -L told it where to find it while compiling.

Or use crle to add /usr/local/lib to system wide runtime linking environment. See man crle. Be VERY CAREFUL with this or you will end up booting from cdrom to repair. Be sure to include the existing library paths!

Command line:
  crle -c /var/ld/ld.config -l /usr/lib:/usr/lib/secure:/usr/local/lib

I usally use the latter as nowadays gcc uses a .so for all its generated programs and then dragging around the LD_LIBRARY_PATH isn't needed.

ldd hobbitd_alert
        libpcre.so.0 =>  /usr/local/lib/libpcre.so.0
        libc.so.1 =>     /usr/lib/libc.so.1
        libgcc_s.so.1 =>         /usr/local/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
        libdl.so.1 =>    /usr/lib/libdl.so.1

I got it to compile but when I run I get in variour log files:

Add the directory where you have the PCRE library installed to the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting for your Hobbit user. E.g. set it in the
default /etc/profile.

If you don't want to put it there, the easiest solution is probably
to add the definition to the top-level Makefile for Hobbit, like


then running "make clean; make; make install" again.
