PHP ./configure fails when adding --with-imap due to pam not being linked

This is the exact same problem as Bug#:26923 -- however, it seems to again be recurring therefor, re-opening as new bug against 5.2.6!

**IMAP support is being compiled as a shared-module** Therefor -lpam needs to be called.

Reproduce code:
./configure --with-imap=shared,/usr

Expected result:
Configure should succeed and not exit

Actual result:
checking for CRYPTO_free in -lcrypto... (cached) yes
checking for SSL_CTX_set_ssl_version in -lssl... (cached) yes
checking whether build with IMAP works... no
configure: error: build test failed. Please check the config.log for details.

Looks more like miscompiled c-client. Please install it from some RPM and don't build it yourself. PHP configure DOES add pam if it's found..
