Had this problem with mkvtoolnix, but other packages are affected, too. I think the ebuild for 7.3 should issue a warning, that a "revdep-rebuild --library libpcre.*" should be run.
Sorry, should have mentioned that this bug is about libpcre 7.3 :)
Yeah, so run revdep-rebuild.

> Yeah, so run revdep-rebuild.
But don't you think the ebuild should warn about that? A bare revdep-rebuild won't do, as the so-name hasn't changed.
Considering that noone ever complained about this, I don't think this is worth spending any effort. IOW, cannot reproduce your issue. The only bug wrt mkvtoolnix and libpcre is Bug 155965 which is entirely unrelated.
