It would be nice if it would be possible to compile imap module directly with imap-uw linkage file, so that all supported authentication modules and protocols would be available. Actually, patches implementing this are in NetBSD pkgsrc system for some time, and I hope such option would be useful for other systems too. Having this option integrated in main PHP tree would ease our package maintenance, too :)

Note there is similar (now closed) PR #4136 with same
issue. The bug DB entry claims it was fixed in CVS,
I don't know why it was backed off.

Anyway, following patch adds configure option --with-imap-linkage.
This option makes php_imap.c #include directly c-client
linkage.c, instead of using list of hardcoded stuff.
Default is same as now, i.e. to NOT use linkage.c.
The --with-imap-linkage also disables the --with-kerberos check, since that is not needed in this case.

Reproduce code:
Code inspection - php_imap.c uses fixed list
instead of using imap-uw supplied linkage.c.

I've uploaded up-to-date patch (as of 7.1, applies also for 7.2). It would be really nice to have this option, would reduce amount of patches we keep for NetBSD pkgsrc package system.

We've found alternative solution for NetBSD pkgsrc, and do not need to maintain this patch any more. You can close this bug. Thank you.
