Build 0.6.2 from source: problem with pcre2 link


#1

Line 8 of dep/pcre.mk attempts to download using https, which the site referred to does not allow. Replacing “https” with “ftp” so that the line reads

 $(JLDOWNLOAD) $@ ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/programming/pcre/pcre2-$(PCRE_VER).tar.bz2

will solve the problem. I saw that the file in julia master links to a different site. I don’t see how to make a PR for the 0.6.2 release…

I think there is already a fix for it and next version 0.6.3 will include it.

You’re right, I saw there is a closed issue for 0.6.x. Thanks.
