>> 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.
> Of course - a completely safe fix would have to do something rather
different from a simple regex to ensure it wasn't catching something it
didn't intend to, and may not be worth the effort. I would think that
adding a space in the regex before the hyphen might be sufficient, but I
don't know if you need to worry about a -D option at the very start of the
cflags string. Adding the space into the regex is how I'm working around
the issue for now.

Right. Adding the space, and a separate check for the start of the string,
would help.

> But then, since what the code is actually trying to get is the include
path and not the full cflags, perhaps it could instead request
--variable=includedir from pkg-config, and not need to munge the string at

Do you mind trying that? I'm sure a patch that does away with the regex
filter entirely would be welcome.
