./configure checks for cdb_bread when passed --with-cdb. However, the CDB API has changed somewhere between 0.55 (the version that works) and version 0.75 (the version that gave me a couple of hours of headaches ;) ). Enough so that the the check performed by ./configure to see if libcdb.a works now fails. Yay. (note that cdb-0.55 *does* work, with relevant files in the same locations)

My full ./configure line:

./configure \
  --enable-versioning \
  --with-apache=../apache_1.3.12 \
  --with-aspell=/usr/local/include/aspell \
  --with-ftp \
  --with-gd \
  --with-jpeg-dir \
  --with-mysql \
  --with-xml \
  --with-zlib \
  --with-pdflib \
  --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/etc \
  --enable-safe-mode \
  --enable-track-vars \
  --enable-force-cgi-redirect \
  --enable-memory-limit \
  --enable-sysvsem \
  --enable-sysvshm \
  --with-gdbm \
  --with-db2 \

This still doesn't seem to be corrected in PHP 4.3.0-dev, which makes the --with-cdb option pretty much useless.

Could one of the developers maybe look rewriting the PHP code to interface with the CDB 0.75 library?

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a PHP problem, snapshots of the sources are packaged
every three hours; this change will be in the next snapshot. You can
grab the snapshot at
In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up soon at

In case this was a website problem, the change will show
up on the site and on the mirror sites in short time.
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

I had no problems with installing CDB 0.75 but had to fix the handler. It should work now.
