Security Update: pcre

One security update was released for Slackware 14.0 and newer along with other update in Slackware-Current. Since my last post, Pat is working on approving most of the requests made on LQ and polishing next Slackware release.

If you look at Distrowatch, Slackware-current is mostly green, meaning it contains the latest version available.

Here are the changelog that i missed since my last post:
Wed Nov 25 06:36:06 UTC 2015
a/aaa_elflibs-14.2-i586-7.txz: Rebuilt.
a/eudev-3.1.5-i586-6.txz: Rebuilt.

       Thanks to Csaba Biegl.
