PHP4 up through versions 4.2.3 installed without incident on the same hardware/software configuration.  Imap version is 2000c-stackgaurdC3.  This is running on a Sun Cobalt RaQ550 server appliance, so upgrading the installed version of imap is not a desirable option.

./configure --with-imap --with-imap-ssl
results in the following:

checking for IMAP support... yes
checking for pam_start in -lpam... yes
checking for crypt in -lcrypt... (cached) yes
checking whether SSL libraries are needed for c-client... /usr/lib
checking whether IMAP works... no
configure: error: build test failed. Please check the config.log for details.

config.log shows the following:

So the added sanity check caught an error in your system.
Not PHP bug. (the build would have failed later otherwise)

(try searching web with "reference to __canary_death_handler'" and you'll find out what the real problem is.)
