Hmm. Sounds like PHP got compiled without preg. You should check what
flags were used to compile, and if the perl-based regular expressions
were compiled in. See if pcre.c is there.[1] If not, then maybe it
can't link. Maybe your PHP expects that other regex protocol, but I
thought that was deprecated. (I use Gentoo, though I have a marginal
recollection of FreeBSD.)
