I configured the php 5.4.0 source like this:

./configure --enable-fpm --enable-cgi --enable-fastcgi --prefix=/usr/local/php 

and then tried to compile with the gmake command. I expected it to complete 
compiling successfully so I could do a `gmake install'. What actually 
happened was a compile failure with this output at the end:

Also, this happened on FreeBSD/arm on a Marvell Sheevaplug. If I remove `--
enable-fpm' from the configure command, make completes successfully; so 
this may be a FPM related problem. This is my complete `uname -a':

i can confirm this for sheevaplug with freebsd 9.0 and PHP 5.3.10_1

it seems that the generic solution in sapi/fpm/fpm/fpm_atomic.h for __ARM__:

#define atomic_cmp_set(a,b,c) __sync_bool_compare_and_swap(a,b,c)

is not working in freebsd? can anyone provide instead of some atomic operations assembler code for the arm(v5) architecture?

hej jensrasmus,

i figured out a working patch with help of some really nice guys in a freebsd/arm chatroom. see if it works for you!

Hej! Thank you schnorte! By editing sapi/fpm/fpm/fpm_atomic.h manually the make compilation process completed successfully. I hope this change will be added to the next minor version of php 5.3 (i.e. 5.3.11) and 5.4. 

Though I do not think the patch works normally by using `patch -p0 < patchfile' or `patch -C < patchfile'; but thats probably just me not being used to patching files ...
