Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2011-11-30 09:26 UTC] tim at digicol dot de
The latest PECL xdiff, 1.5.1 beta, does not compile under PHP 5.4.0RC2. (The 
latest stable version, 1.4.1, is so old that it doesn't even run under PHP 5.3.)

libxdiff-0.23 is installed. The same procedure worked fine under PHP 5.3.4.

Is there anything we can do to help find/fix this bug? xdiff is essential to our 
application, we cannot move to PHP 5.4 because of this problem...

Expected result:
Successful "make".

Actual result:
[digicol@dcxcentosvmware intl]$ sudo pecl install xdiff-beta
