I've build PHP7.0.0 from the releases, as well as 7.0.1RC1 to test my sites before upgrading. One of the issues I encountered was the fact that when I use the iconv functions, it crashes the script with a Bus error (core dumped).

iconv is running fine. Both through the command line as well as with PHP5.6.16.

Running the testscript on 7.0.0 or 7.0.1RC1 exits with:
Bus error (core dumped)

In PHP5.6.16 it returns the following response:              

Test script:
echo iconv('UTF-16', 'UTF-8', 'teststring');

Expected result:

Actual result:
Bus error (core dumped)

Could you please manage to post a backtrace My Linux and Windows builds don't crash with your repro case.

My apologies for this bugreport. I recompiled the PHP7.0.1RC1 and it is working fine now. Don't know what went wrong, but now it's working fine. 

Apperantly I made an error in the configure arguments.
