nmap is looking for pcre headers in pcre/pcre.h which our current
version of pcre does not populates.

So, just create those as symlinks to the actual headers.

Note: this is not fixing anything for now, because the error in nmap is
hidden by another error. But this is relaticvely easy to fix, so here we
go... ;-)
