The linking fails with "undefined reference to zm_startup_password".

Test script:
Configure PHP, run make. 

Expected result:
Either configure bail and PHP states it depends on `-lcrypt` or the password functions are non-core.

Actual result:
The whole of password.c is inside a  #if HAVE_CRYPT  conditional, but  basic_functions.c  unconditionally initializes the password module and tries to declares its functions, leading to this error.

Para resolver o problema acima descrito utilizei um recurso de alimentar as variáveis do ambiente LDFLAGS e LIBS antes de executar o script de configure, da seguinte forma:

$ LDFLAGS="$LDFLAGS -lcrypt" LIBS="$LIBS -lcrypt" ./configure <opcoes>

Espero ter ajudado


To solve the problem described above used a resource to feed the variables LDFLAGS and LIBS environment before running the configure script, as follows:

$ LDFLAGS = "$ LDFLAGS -lcrypt" LIBS = "$ LIBS -lcrypt" ./configure <options>

I hope this helps

Ran into this building PHP 5.6.31.  Spent quite a bit of time trying different combinations until I finally found this post.

Thanks much to alcione who suggested adding -lcrypt which at least works around it.
