plase check you have the specified versions of autoconf, automake, libtool etc. as specified in the manual.
 [2003-11-25 08:13 UTC] dbellizz at angmar dot com
automake (GNU automake) 1.7.8 (GNU libtool) 1.4.3 (1.922.2.110 2002/10/23 01:39:54)
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.57

"libtool, automake and autoconf. The combination of libtool 1.4.2, automake 1.4 and autoconf 2.13 is known to work; mileage may vary with other version combinations."

I think (from memory) the biggest issue is probably autoconf - I dont think we've ever managed to get 2.57 to work.

Sigh what do you want me to say. Your software doesn't work with newer versions of autoconf. To me thats a bug which is  still valid but I get the impression that your not going to make any effort to fix this or offer a workaround. I guess I really didn't need to the use the app that required php-gtk anyway. Walks away bummed.
 [2003-12-01 10:11 UTC]
It will probably be fixed in GTK2, unless someone who knows autoconf/build system jumps forwards and offers a fix.

This comment from helps (autoconf 2.58 used):
 ---- snip ----
Simple solution to PHP_GTK_ARG_ENABLE problem detailed below. This must be added to this page and the README, please oh please!

./buildconf (again!)
make install

I also needed to make the following change to my php.ini:
extension_dir = /usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20020429/

Once that was in place, the tests ran beautifully!
