 Cannot find php_pdo_driver.h

The ./configure script doesn't look in in /usr/include/php5 
for the php_pdo_driver.h

Extra info:

#php -v
PHP 5.3.3 (cli) 
Copyright (c) 1997-2010 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2010 Zend 

# rpm -q php5

# rpm -q php5-pdo

# php-config --include-dir

Reproduce code:
pecl install -n pdo_informix

Expected result:
pdo_informix should install..

Actual result:
> checking for PDO includes... configure: error: Cannot find
> php_pdo_driver.h.
> ERROR: `/tmp/pear/download/PDO_INFORMIX-1.2.6/configure
> --with-pdo-informix=/opt/IBM/informix' failed

I manually altered /tmp/pear/download/PDO_INFORMIX-

Where you have the lines:

if test -f $abs_srcdir/include/php/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h; 
   elif test -f $abs_srcdir/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h; then
   elif test -f 
$prefix/include/php/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h; then
     as_fn_error "Cannot find php_pdo_driver.h." "$LINENO" 5
 I added this lines so it would find the header file:  
 instead of
 .../php/..  )
   elif test -f 
$prefix/include/php5/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h; then

This problem is probably caused by acinclude.m4 which is used to generate the configure script, here:

If you compile from source you will not have this issue, so it is not a bug in PHP. In OP's case it is an opensuse issue. The acinclude.m4 file needs to be updated.

A temporary workaround:
sudo ln -s /usr/include/php5/ /usr/include/php

I've added an Ubuntu bug report:

I believe this bug can be closed.
