patch to enable compression support in pcre2grep
pcre2grep can automatically decompress gzip/bzip2-compressed files, but only if configure was run with the --enable-pcre2grep-libz and --enable-pcre2grep-libbz2 options. Doing so would add functionality and, since libz and libbz2 are already in base, would not add any dependencies to the port.
I've attached a trivial patch to add those options to CONFIGURE_ARGS. I've tested and it's working for me on 12.3-RELEASE and 13.0-RELEASE.
All of the above applies to pcregrep in devel/pcre, too, except that the options in question are --enable-pcregrep-libz and --enable-pcregrep-libbz2 (obviously).
