Bug #23606 Unable to build --with-db4 (db4.1.25)
Submitted: 2003-05-13 08:34 UTC Modified: 2004-09-25 17:33 UTC
From: tommi dot komulainen at iki dot fi Assigned: helly
Status: Closed Package: Compile Failure
PHP Version: 4.3.9,5.0.2 OS: *
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2003-05-13 08:34 UTC] tommi dot komulainen at iki dot fi
The configure script is unable to find the db4 in the system, because it isn't
taking into account #defines such as the following in /usr/include/db.h:

#define db_create db_create_4001

The library does not contain unversioned symbols and therefore the configure
script needs to #include the db.h to be able to make proper checks for the
versioned symbols.

Replacing the AC_CHECK_LIB with somewhat similar AC_TRY_LINK should do the
trick.  See the following patch (I've only tried it with db4.1, I don't know if
the function signature is the same for older versions, but I'd think so.)

First thanks for directing me to an error.

Second please keep my code inside it's there for a reason
and then make up a new patch. But i'm on it.
 [2003-05-14 01:28 UTC] helly@php.net
This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a PHP problem, snapshots of the sources are packaged
every three hours; this change will be in the next snapshot. You can
grab the snapshot at http://snaps.php.net/.
 
In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up soon at
http://www.php.net/manual/.

In case this was a PHP.net website problem, the change will show
up on the PHP.net site and on the mirror sites in short time.
 
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

If you are using PHP-4.3.4 with db-4.1.25 make sure that you have db-4.1.25 (Berkeley DB) compiled with "LIBSO_LIBS= -lpthread" in Makefile (db-4.1.25/build_unix/Makefile). Se more at http://www.sleepycat.com/docs/ref/build_unix/notes.html in section 3.

not fixed in CVS!
problem: incorrect order of c src and libs.
you must prepend LDFLAGS and LIBS, seperate LIBS from LDFLAGS.

$ gcc -o conftest -g -O2  -L/usr/lib -ldb-4.2  conftest.c -lresolv -lm
/tmp/ccozwee7.o(.text+0x29): In function `main':
/usr/src/apache-php/php-4.3.9/conftest.c:7: undefined reference to `_db_create'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

rurban@reini /usr/src/apache-php/php-4.3.9
$ gcc -o conftest -g -O2  conftest.c -L/usr/lib -ldb-4.2 -lresolv -lm

(the same goes for ext/ldap/config.m4)
