Configuring php with the --with-oci8 option fails when compiling in 64bit mode, because the configuration script will not find the correct path of the Oracle 64bit libraries. 

The libraries are installed in $ORACLE_HOME/lib64. The Library Path is resolved to $ORACLE_HOME/lib wher the 32bit libraries reside.

Is this a standard install?  My Oracle9 on Solaris 2.8 is all installed under $ORACLE_HOME/lib

 [2002-09-30 09:36 UTC] Manfred dot Metz at rsd dot rohde-schwarz dot com
Yes, this is a standard install of Oracle 8. All 32 bit Libraries are in $ORACLE_HOME/lib and 64 bit Libraries in $ORACLE_HOME/lib64

The problem is the configure script, which is not aware of compiling 64 bit - so the wrong library path is set.

The actual wayaround is to edit the configure script accordingly

vi configure

This works - but there should be a better solution in future.

I understand what your claiming the bug is, thats not the issue.  What I'm questioning is the validity of the bug, in the sense that my local 64bit Oracle install doesn't use the lib64 notation, but still uses the lib.  Which may mean that my install is borked, but thus my asking.

Yes, again this is the standard installation path of Oracle 8i. For more information about disk layout of Oracle 8i 64bit read the Product Notes section in

1.  Experienced similar but slightly different issue.
On Oracle 9i (9.2.0) under HP-UX 11i (11.11) the 64 bit libraries are installed in ORACLE_HOME/lib and the 32 bit libraries are in ORACLE_HOME/lib32.  This results in obvious link failures when trying to build a 32 bit version of PHP.

2.  There are obvious work arounds to force linkage against the correct libraries, however it would be nice if there were a config option to override the Oracle library directory.
