Ouch, very sorry to hear that.

Try adding the following 5 lines to the end of one of your *.c files.
I'd suggest appending them to your pcre_fullinfo.c file since that one
is more representative of what the deprecated function did.
I just tried that on my version and was able to verify the resulting
library (DLL) does expose that previously available function.
PCRE_EXP_DEFN int PCRE_CALL_CONVENTION
pcre_info(const pcre *argument_re, int *optptr, int *first_byte)
