i've downloaded php5 and php4...
PHP5 runs throuhg the configure and compiles perfectly on SuSE 9.3 x64...

However php4 configure doesn't LOOK IN THE RIGHT PLACE for my libaries ( /usr/lib64 ). "I.e. configure: error: Cannot find OpenSSL's libraries".

--libdir= doesn't help.
configure script doesn't find jpeg, png, ssl libaries...
( because they are all under /usr/lib64 )

Can you help me? we can't live without php4 on our new server.

Reproduce code:
./configure --enable-force-cgi-redirect --without-mm --enable-fastcgi --prefix=/srv/fastcgi/php-4.4.2 --libdir=/lib64 --with-openssl --with-gd --with-jpeg-dir --with-png-dir

Expected result:
configure should work on suse 9.3 x64

Actual result:
configure doesn't find the libaries and .h files and so on...

Support for 64bit OSes in ./configure has been added in 5.1 and it won't be backported.
With --libdir option you supposed to set where to PUT the libraries, so no, it's not what you want. See --with-libdir in 5.1.
