When I tried to compile PHP5 today everything ended up 
but when I visited the phpinfo page I saw that my request for 
bz2 was ignored. 
the configure command says '--with-bz2'  
but I can't find it on the phpinfo page. 
I'm sure that I got bz2 compiled in PHP4.3 and PHP4.5 
is bzip support not yet added to PHP5?

sorry, wrong email....

That's what you get for not following the mailing lists
and still using a version under heavy development..

ext/bz2 was moved to PECL and we don't have figured
out yet how to include certain PECL extensions with releases and php5 checkouts.

Assigned to responsible party.
