[mapserver-dev] Opinions on using GNU regex VS PHP regex for Windows build

Hello all,

With the recent releases of PHP (5.3.8, 5.3.9) I have noticed problems 
compiling MapServer-trunk when pointing to PHP's regex code.  I can 
switch to pointing to GNU regex library, and there are no compile errors 
with MapServer-trunk.  Since I have always pointed to PHP's regex, I am 
of course a little hesitant: so my question is, does anyone see any 
issues if I switch to always use GNU regex instead?
