I recently wanted to do socket based options with PHP4, so I downloaded PHP 4.0.5, compiled it fine.  However when I attempted to run the Ex2 Socket Example: Simple TCP/IP client located at http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.sockets.php  PHP 4 core dumped:

./mysocket.cgi
X-Powered-By: PHP/4.0.5
Content-type: text/html


<h2>TCP/IP Connection</h2>
l core  
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I recompiled PHP4 with the --enable-debug ('./configure' '--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql' '--with-gd' '--with-zlib' '--with-png' '--with-xml' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-sockets' '--enable-discard-path' '--enable-debug') and analyzed the core:

I think the '--enable-debug' didn't get accounted for. 
Please try deleting config.cache and reconfigure/compile PHP again.

Then generate that gdb bactrace. Hopefully it will have more info in it.

Ok, I think the problem was I was strip'ing the binary before moving it around.  Try this:

This should be fixed in CVS. Please try the latest snapshot
from http://snaps.php.net/

Reopen it still segfaults.
