The attached patch makes it possible to configure the package (ie. go past the "phpize" step).
However, compilation will fail afterwards due to changes in fribidi's API. See my other patch in bug #57893 for a fix.

this worded fine:
$text = fribidi_log2vis("سلام", FRIBIDI_RTL, FRIBIDI_CHARSET_UTF8);

i will give an error during use this:
$text = fribidi_log2vis("سلام بهنام", FRIBIDI_RTL, FRIBIDI_CHARSET_UTF8);
// Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Thanks for the report. I can reproduce the bug here, so I will take a look in the 
next couple of days to see what's the root of the problem.
 [2013-05-27 07:15 UTC]
Okay, this should be fixed in the latest release, version 1.2. Please open a new 
bug if found any bugs.
