 [2006-11-06 15:23 UTC] wouter at widexs dot nl
I get an error when trying to build PHP 5.2.0 with imap c-client 2006c1 ( :

/opt/install/widexs_apache_2006_017/php-5.2.0/ext/imap/php_imap.c:79: conflicting types for `utf8_mime2text'
/opt/install/widexs_apache_2006_017/imap-2006c1/c-client/utf8.h:548: previous declaration of `utf8_mime2text'

Which is correct, because:

* PHP 5.2.0 : long utf8_mime2text(SIZEDTEXT *src, SIZEDTEXT *dst);
* imap c-client 2006c1 : long utf8_mime2text (SIZEDTEXT *src,SIZEDTEXT *dst,long flags);

Haven't tested with previous versions of PHP, but I assume the same will happen.

IMAP c-client 2004g gives no problem.

This could be seen as a DUP of #37948 and #38941, but it is still present in 5.2.0 ...

Does your imap's mail.h header contain the mail_append_set() 
 [2006-11-06 18:25 UTC] wouter at widexs dot nl
Yes, it does :)

grep "mail_append_set" src/c-client/mail.h

SEARCHSET *mail_append_set (SEARCHSET *set,unsigned long msgno);
 [2006-11-07 17:09 UTC]
Can you see if HAVE_NEW_MIME2TEXT is defined inside PHP's 
main.h ?
 [2006-11-07 18:49 UTC] wouter at widexs dot nl
It hasn't ...

php-5.2.0/main/php_config.h:/* #undef HAVE_NEW_MIME2TEXT */
 [2006-11-07 19:26 UTC] wouter at widexs dot nl
configure:45679: ../imap-2006c1/c-client/mail.h: No such file or directory

This file exists though...

If I change configure from :

#include <$IMAP_INC_DIR/mail.h>


#include "$IMAP_INC_DIR/mail.h"

It correctly works...

This patch fixes my problem ...

It works just fine here as long as the fullpath to the library 
is specified ala /usr/local/imap-2006c 
 [2006-11-17 10:26 UTC] wouter at widexs dot nl
This was indeed fixed when using full-path, BUT it is still present in PHP 4.4.4 and PHP4-dev.

(bugfix from 5.x not backported to 4.x)
 [2007-01-03 19:42 UTC] jmoseley at pgtv dot com
Can someone provide a patch for 4.4.4?  The latest CVS release of 4.4.4 does not include the fix.

I'd compile 5.2.0, but I am having linker problems since I run a Solaris box that uses a GCC compiler build with Sun's ld, blah, blah, blah.
 [2007-01-22 15:53 UTC] php at aaronrubin dot com
Are there any plans to patch this? The latest snapshots still 
have the same issue.
 [2007-01-26 12:33 UTC] dmda at yandex dot ru
you can fix this with following:

open ext/php_imap.c in your favorite editor,
remove utf8_mime2text prototype (it's just wrong),
find utf8_mime2text function call and add 3rd arguement:

that's all tricks.
 [2007-01-26 12:55 UTC] wouter at widexs dot nl
That's not the point ;)

It's the hope to have this fixed in 4.4.5 so we can use it without patching, just like in 5.x
 [2007-01-29 10:08 UTC]
This bug has been fixed in CVS.

Snapshots of the sources are packaged every three hours; this change
will be in the next snapshot. You can grab the snapshot at
