Status: Not a bug Package: Compile Failure
PHP Version: 5CVS-2003-12-6 OS: FreeBSD 5.1 (Stable)
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

I tried beta2 (and newest image 2003/Dec/06). I used 

configure --with-apxs2=/path --with-pgsql=/path

I was using FreeBSD 5.1 (Stable).

ext/standard/dns.lo: In function `zif_dns_get_record':
/php5-200312061630/ext/standard/dns.c:631: undefined reference to `res_ninit'
/php5-200312061630/ext/standard/dns.c:635: undefined reference to `res_nmkquery'
/php5-200312061630/ext/standard/dns.c:641: undefined reference to `res_nsend'
/php5-200312061630/ext/standard/dns.c:675: undefined reference to `res_nclose'

If I tried another option --with-mysql, I got the same error  (in another method)

That is pretty strange since that part of the code won't be even compile if you don't have those functions..

What do you have in Makefile for EXTRA_LIBS ?

 [2003-12-08 15:45 UTC] andy at kksonline dot com
Hi !

For extra libs I have this...

EXTRA_LIBS=-lcrypt -lbind -lm -lxml2 -lz -liconv

I have Apache build totally normal (with so enabled), v2.0.44..

I usually had no problems compiling php (v3 and v4), with just this options...

Please try changing the following line in your main/php_config.h file:

/* #undef BIND_8_COMPAT */


#define BIND_8_COMPAT 1

Then make and let us know the results.

Hi !
Nothing changed. Same error.
 [2003-12-09 15:37 UTC]
Please put the config.log file online somewhere OR email it to me. (DO NOT paste it here!)

 [2003-12-10 10:24 UTC]
Configure detects the functions with the underscore prefixes.
(e.g. __res_nmkquery in -lbind)

Please check if you have '#define HAVE_RESOLV_H 1' in main/php_config.h..also check that the /usr/include/resolv.h 
actually has the aliases for these functions, e.g.

#define res_nmkquery __res_nmkquery

 [2003-12-10 11:57 UTC] andy at kksonline dot com
Hi !
I have checked both things.
main/php_config.h looks fine

I have taken look into /usr/include/resolv.h

There are quite a few res_* defines, but I checked, there are few res_n* defines missing, all those I reported to be produced (res_ninit, res_nmkquery, res_nsend and res_nclose).

Any idea what to do next. Where should these defines be linked to? Maybe I can ask on freebsd forum, but I need to know what I am looking for...

 [2003-12-11 06:37 UTC]
Ask why bind has these functions but why doesn't your resolv.h  have the aliases..

This is not PHP bug.

i had the same problem under fbsd 5.1.

than i tried different thing and finally it worked.

i deinstalled bind8 and put bind9 on it. than i did a portsclean -C -D -L -i

and after these thing the compile worked without any mistake.

Indeed, php5 compiled fine on my FreeBSD box until I installed bind 8.  Then, after recompiling, the above errors occurred.  PHP 4 works fine either way.  Was php 5 assuming Bind 9?

I had the same problem on machines ranging from FreeBSD 4.6 to 5.2. This is how I got it to work.

If you have a resolv.h in /usr/include, do the following.
(don't forget to backup)

cd /usr/local/bind/
(for safety)
mv include oldinclude
mv lib oldlib
ln -s /usr/include include
ln -s /usr/lib lib

now Download the Bind 8 (source) and compile it. it will put a new working resolv.h in /usr/include and the other appropriate files, It will also put the appropriate libs in the lib dir.

Now you should be able to compile php 5 as normal.

Hope this helps.
