I'm pretty sure no-one wants to set up a Yocto environment just to
reproduce this failure. :)

There's really no completely safe way to rewrite that regular
expression. But I think you can avoid even invoking it by passing
--with-serf=/path/to/serf/prefix to configure; if the Serf path is
provided, we won't invoke pkg-config.

Can you give that a try, please, and report the result?
