This is not the case for the pcre distribution, but it is easy to add this
file after the installation. On the system where I'm in charge of
installing ocaml and related software for many users, I find it
comfortable to findlib-ize all the packages. For instance, a META file
for Pcre is:

version = "4.2.7"
requires = ""
archive(byte) = "pcre.cma"
archive(native) = "pcre.cmxa"

(I do the same for instance for lablgtk)

Of course, it would be easier if all the packages were findlib compliant 
(it's usually strightforward to add the installation/desinstallation
rules and the META file) ...
