I'm trying to build PHP yet again for Mac OS X and I can't even get the configure script to complete.  The configure script fails, when using the supplied "/bin/sh",
when performing the GD tests. Commenting out the:

  if test "$PHP_GD" != "no"; then

and matching "fi" allows the script to continue. It later stops again when it comes to the LDAP tests, which again have a large number of lines.

Having already installed the pre-built "bash" from, I changed within the configure script the #! to


And the script finally finished normally.

You should try this snapshot:

It's only php version (php4.3.0-dev) which configures/compiles out-of-box on MacOSX.
