Environment:  Gnu installation (GCC, MySQL, etc) from Solaris 8 Companion CD, Apache 2.0.44, PHP 4.3.0, MySQL 3.23
Apache compiled and runs fine in the environment.  

PHP:  ./configure --with-mysql=/opt/sfw/mysql --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs

PHP configure runs fine, and the build works up to link.  It then fails with:
Cannot find /opt/sfw/mysql/lib/mysql/.lib/

Where is the ".lib" coming from?  
The link also indicates that it has failed to create .lib/
Again - what gives with the ".lib"?

Exact output is:
ld: fatal: file /opt/sfw/mysql/lib/mysql/.libs/ open failed: No such file or directory
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to .libs/

Again, why is it lokking for the MySQL client library in ".libs" ?

Looks like broken mysql installation. How was it installed?
Compiled from sources or from Mysql AB provided binaries?

In /opt/sfw/mysql/lib/mysql/ check if there is file and paste it's content here.

With PHP 4.3.8, just as the original bug says, you get
this error on Solaris.

./configure --with-mysql=/opt/sfw/mysql

and then eventually:

ld: fatal: file /opt/sfw/mysql/lib/mysql/.libs/ open failed: No such file or directory

Which is quite correct. There is no such file. There is
no such directory. The library is in:


which is exactly where it's supposed to be. It's libtool
(presumably) that has modified the location and added 
the .libs element, and presumably it's picked up the line


from Changing this line to yes
allows the build to proceed.
