PHP 4.0.2, Oracle 8i libs, Apache 1.3.12

Config script:
'./configure' '--with-mysql=/usr/local' '--with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs' '--enable-track-vars' '--enable-trans-sid' '--with-config-file=/usr/local/apache/conf' '--with-xml' '--disable-debug' '--with-oracle' '--with-oci8' '--with-gd=/usr/local' '--with-cybercash=/root/src/mck-' '--enable-sigchild'

When I compile in Oracle, and OCI8 support into PHP, it leaves a lot of defunct apache processes around.

[libhttpd.ep <defunct>]

I read on the mailing list a fix is to --enable-sigchild in php and compile apache with -lpthread, but that didn't work.

A request to apache once there are these defunct processes around will just hang until apache is restarted, or those processes die out.

There is no core dump.  I have 80 of those in memory right now.
