FWIW the HEAD of PCRE has an unbroken streak of 361 builds on Apache  
Gump: http://clarus.apache.org/pcre/index.html

This is an XServe G4 running Tiger, but it seems PCRE is a solidly  
building citizen on the platform.

Apache HTTP Server HEAD is currently broken because the Apache  
Portable Runtime utilities were folded into APR proper, and I'm  
waiting for some tuits to fix the descriptor.
