Submitted: 2006-06-20 01:58 UTC Modified: 2006-06-20 05:57 UTC
From: bens at effortlessis dot com Assigned:
Status: Not a bug Package: *Compile Issues
PHP Version: 4.4.2 OS: CentOS 4.x
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Description:
------------
Buildconf fails to operate as needed - it does not write a new ./configure script. Therefore, installing new extensions (such as php-template, http://php-templates.sourceforge.net) is not possible. 

PHP release 4.3.4 is the last release I'm able to get working. Although there's a warning about cache code, I'm running a LATER than recommended release of autoconf! 

Reproduce code:
---------------
/bin/sh; 
# tar -zxvf php-4.4.2.tgz; 
# cd php-4.4.2; 
# ./buildconf --force; 

Expected result:
----------------
[root@kepler php-4.3.4]# ./buildconf --force

There is no way why you have to run buildconf yourself. You can use phpize for those external extensions. In order for buildconf to work properly you need a good working set of autotools which you don't seem to have (see the warnings when running buildconf for example). See http://php.net/anoncvs.php at the end for the recommended versions.
