Aparently the PHP code relating to PDFlib is only current to version 2.x of PDFlib, and will not work with PDFlib 3.0.

configure stops with:
checking whether to include pdflib support... yes
checking for PDF_new in -lpdf ... no
configure: error: Check if zlib.... (yes it finds all that stuff).

All references to PDFlib that mention version, all refference version 2.0.

nm /usr/local/lib/ | grep PDF_new
00009480 T PDF_new
000094b0 T PDF_new2

So there infact seems to be two versions of PDF_new in the lib?
There are also symlinks: and as well as libpdf.a and

I will proceed to take a look at this, though I'm not sure where to start?

We are sorry, but can not support PHP 3 related problems anymore.
Momentum is gathering for PHP 5, and we think supporting PHP 3 will
lead to a waste of resources which we want to put into getting PHP 5
ready. Ofcourse PHP 4 will will continue to be supported for the
forseeable future.

works in php 4
