When compiling PHP enabling IMAP (--with-imap) the configure script breaks 
checking for c-client.a because of invalid syntax in the conditions:

if test ! -r "$IMAP_DIR/c-client/libc-client.a" && -r "$IMAP_DIR/c-client/c-
client.a" ; then
elif test ! -r "$IMAP_DIR/$PHP_LIBDIR/libc-client.a" && -r 
"$IMAP_DIR/$PHP_LIBDIR/c-client.a"; then

Where the second check is missing the "test" command (&& -r ... instead of && test 
-r ...),. It should be:

if test ! -r "$IMAP_DIR/c-client/libc-client.a" && test -r "$IMAP_DIR/c-client/c-
client.a" ; then
elif test ! -r "$IMAP_DIR/$PHP_LIBDIR/libc-client.a" && test -r 
"$IMAP_DIR/$PHP_LIBDIR/c-client.a"; then
