Summary0003252: prce has no unicode properties support
Descriptionif we try to work with unicode character classes, we get
pcre unicode support is off

if (@preg_match('/\pL/u', 'a') == 1) {
    echo "PCRE unicode support is turned on.\n";
} else {
    echo "PCRE unicode support is turned off.\n";
you may also simply test with pcretest -C
which says, tha no unicode properties support is builtin.

Additional InformationThe Problem could be simply solved by changing by changing the %build line in the spec file
%configure --enable-utf8 --enable-unicode-properties

%configure --enable-utf8

Hope that a package maintainer could fix it in the mainstream.

This page details how to build a fixed PCRE with Unicode support, or you can just download the RPM that has been already compiled for Centos 5.2
