Cannot create shared library when a static library is used.

When one package (c-client (imap) in my case) is build as an static library, the final php library is build on HP-UX as an static library.

It's not the case with Linux.

Reproduce code:
./configure \
--with-config-file-path=/PKl01h01/soft/web/cfg \
--with-mysql=/PKl01h01/soft/mysql \
--with-pgsql=/PKl01h01/soft/postgresql \
--with-sybase-ct=/PKl01hd2/soft/ase12.5/OCS-12_5 \
--with-pdflib=/PKl01h01/soft/web \
--with-zlib-dir=/PKl01h01/soft/web \
--with-png-dir=/PKl01h01/soft/web \
--with-ttf=/PKl01h01/soft/web \
--with-jpeg-dir=/PKl01h01/soft/web \
--with-imap=/PKl01h01/soft/src/imap \
--with-imap-ssl=/PKl01h01/soft/web/ \
--with-libxml-dir=/PKl01h01/soft/web \
--without-iconv \
--with-gd \
--prefix=/PKl01h01/soft/web \
--with-apxs=/PKl01h01/soft/web/apache/bin/apxs \


look at libs directory

total 60588

-rw-r-----   1 xxxxxx   yyyyyy      1518 Apr  3 14:39

Expected result:
an .sl (shared library) and not a static library (.a)

Just go blame the libtool authors. They decided that you have to have everything either static or shared on your system.
Not a PHP bug.

It's seems that I don't have libtool installed on my system : 

ksh: libtool:  not found

There's a file called libtool who is placed in php source root directory. This file seems be created during php ./configure. 

Should I report a bug to libtool's authors about this file ?

It won't do any good, you still have to have all libraries as shared.

I can't have c-client (imap) as shared library
(cf FAQ c-client Why don't you make c-client a shared library? :

So, if there's no solution, I think that a warning (You are going to compile php on HP-UX with imap support : No shared library can be build) in configuration step about this problem would not be an bad idea.

I change the category of this ticket from Compile Failure to Compile Warning

Libtool still won't build stuff mixed like that.
