line #47725 of configure script as distributed in 5.0.0RC1:

  if test "$ext_shared" = "no" || ! test -e $ext_builddir/"; then

this blows up on FreeBSD (though note that I'm running a 4.0 userspace for complicated reasons).

the fix is to change

  || ! test


  -o !

That done, I got 5.0.0RC1 up and running and behaving itself.  phpbb2.0.8/mysql4.x is my only app at present, but it's a pretty good workout I figure.

You should have this same problem with PHP 4.3.6RC1 as the code is the same there. Can you please verify that? I've fixes ready for both versions but I'd like you to confirm that it is broken with 4.3.6RC1 too.

I'll do ya one better.  I knew I remembered having to fix this once
before, and here's where:

Oh, and: the problem does <i>not</i> exist in 4.3.4 configure.  It was introduced in 4.3.5.

will be in the next snapshot. You can grab the snapshot at
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.
