I'm running php 5.0.4 (no option for it in PHP version?).  Here's what I did:

1. tar zxvfm Fileinfo-0.3.tgz (inside ext src directory)
2. mv Fileinfo-0.3 fileinfo
3. sh ../../scripts/phpize
4. ./configure --with-php-config=/etc/php.ini

The configure stops and I get this error: 

checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out

/etc/php.ini: line 1: [PHP]: command not found
/etc/php.ini: line 3: syntax error near unexpected token `;;'
/etc/php.ini: line 3: `;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;'
configure: error: Cannot find php-config. Please use --with-php-config=PATH

Expected result:
fileinfo should configure

Actual result:
Throws an error when attempting to configure when pointing to the php.ini file.

I would also like to compile this module statically but when I remove the old main php configure file and run ./buildconf --force in the php src directory, the --with-fileinfo flag isn't added to that configure file.

I figured out what the problem was.  I didn't know that for every new extension you add to php, you have to delete the previously compiled source and untar it again so it will detect the new extension.  It seems strange that the only time the php configure script will detect an extension is if it is newly untarred.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PECL itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PECL, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PECL.

--with-php-config should point to the php-config script not to php.ini
