I think that one thing that the ports system lacks is a simple origin
substitution variable in make.conf that you can use when all else fails,

SUBSTITUTE_ORIGINS+= devel/pcre|devel/pcre-utf8

to make things that depend on devel/pcre depend on devel/pcre-utf8

It's not automatic, but it is simple and transparent.
