In the Sybase section, the configure script adds to the $LIBS variable the library "sybtcl" which does not exists in my system. I take a look in the Sybase directory and I found only the "tcl" library. When configuring the other extensions (eg. zlib), the scritp fails because it tries to use the non-existant sybtcl library while compiling the test programs "conftest".

Moreover the tcl library in /usr/local/lib (owned by the tcl/tk package)  takes the precedence on the Sybase tcl library located in my Sybase directory.

My configure line is:

./configure --with-apache=../apache \
               --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/apache/etc \
               --with-sybase-ct=/sybase \
               --with-oci8 --with-oracle \
               --with-gdbm --with-gd --with-pdflib --with-zlib \
               --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local --with-tiff-dir=/usr/local \
               --enable-calendar --enable-dbase --enable-yp \
               --enable-versioning --enable-track-vars \
               --enable-ftp --enable-trans-sid \
               --enable-sysvsem --enable-sysvshm

This is the tail of the generated config.log file:

This is a problem with the way Sybase has named their
libraries in the past. The easiest solution is to go
to $SYBASE/libs and ln -s The better
solution is to upgrade your CT-Lib to a newer version, which should have the proper name.
