Sorry, my question was not clear.  I think you already mentioned the
above in the thread.  What I was curious about was why Ævar was
seeing that JIT disabled with NO_LIBPCRE1_JIT alone on his Linux
setup, i.e. namely this part from his message:

    *But* for some reason you still get away with that on Linux. I
    don't know why, but I assume the compiler toolchain is more lax
    for some reason than on Solaris.n

In any case, thanks for a fix; queued.
