I have tried this in multiple versions of php5, including several snapshots. I've also done so with different IMAP C-Client versions, also with different snapshots. 

I've compiled the C-Client and placed it in correct locations, as well as setup the actuall IMAP and POP3 server on my system.

IMAP *.c files located in /usr/local/imap-2004b/lib/
IMAP *.h files located in /usr/local/imap-2004b/include/

The c-client.a and libc-client.a files are also in lib/, (I have also tried using symlinks instead of actuall copy when creating libc-client.a, but that didn't work  either)

I trimmed my ./configure line down, and narrowed the problem specifically to imap. I can compile with any other extension of my choosing but this one.

./configure --with-apxs2=/var/www/bin/apxs --with-imap=/usr/local/imap-2004b

Results in a configure error that tells me to check the config.log file.

I do so, and I see that the failed operation was #include confdefs.h

confdefs.h is part of the package i'm installing (PHP5) and i cannot see it not being found, just because i'm compiling --with-imap. 

I consulted several debian forums and IRC channels, as well as EFNet #PHP, and no one was able to solve this problem.

I also did a thorough search of google and but found nothing similar to this problem. 

I have recompiled IMAP four times now, but it still does it.

When running ./configure statement, it runs fine until i

err Okay, bug report was trimmed for some reason (?)

It runs fine until it gets to Checking Whether IMAP Support

then sprouts the error, and tells me to check the log.

I will paste the log here if need be. Thanks.

Please put that log somewhere online and provide a link... it's too large to be pasted here.

UPDATE: Okay, it seems that IMAP-2004b was compiling with OpenSSL support *even after telling it explicitly not to* and that was the reason why it would not compile. 

Still at a loss why it was reporting problems with confdefs.h, but i guess this falls under "C-Client" bugs.

Thanks for your time, I have it working now.
