the distribution of pcre include it's own pcre. You should use the one
installed by debian.

I successfully build ocaml-pcre on debian with shared suport by
- installing the libpcre3-dev package
- modifying one of the pcre-OCaml/Makefile :
replacing 

shared:	byte-code-nolink native-code-nolink
	ocamlmklib -o pcre pcre.cmo pcre.cmx pcre_intf.o \
		-L../pcre-C/.libs -lpcre -rpath $(OCAML_LIB_INSTALL)
	cp ../pcre-C/.libs/libpcre.a .
	ar r libpcre.a pcre_intf.o
	ranlib libpcre.a

by

shared:	byte-code-nolink native-code-nolink
	ocamlmklib -o pcre pcre.cmo pcre.cmx pcre_intf.o \
		-lpcre -rpath $(OCAML_LIB_INSTALL)

it compile. By the way the pcre library in debian is not the same than
the pcre-C in pcre-ocaml, so there may be problems, and I have do no
further test.
