I've build an apache 2.2.4 ssl server, which works very well.

I now wan't to integrate the latest PHP (version 5.2.3) engine:

>nohup ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/php --enable-cli --bindir=/usr/bin --disable-libxml --enable-so=shared --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-mysqli=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config > configure.log 2>&1&

>nohup make > make.log 2>&1&

But then, I got into trouble:
>make install
        echo '\
Installing PHP SAPI module:       apache2handler
/usr/local/apache2/build/ SH_LIBTOOL='/usr/local/apache2/build/libtool' /usr/local/apache2/modules

Has anybody any idea how to solve this?

I've seen many times the same error with google, but I was unable
to find out a solution... 

Thanks in advance.

Didn't IBM drop support for AIX already? :)
Reclassified. IIRC, this is actually Apache bug..

See bug #39197 which has pretty good info what the problem really is.

I've investigated bug #39197, but I couln't really find a solution for the which is not present after a configure and make on an AIX system.

I also didn't found any info about a possible apache bug, if it is an Apache bug...

I've build from the PHP 5.2.3 source the same configure and make on a Debian 4 Linux system, and the make install on the end completes successfull.

So, the make install problem should be related to AIX...

Does anybody has any idea or hint how to solve this?

Thanks in advance,
