When enabling ZIP Support (enable-zip):

./configure '--prefix=/usr/local/php537' '--with-apxs2' '--with-config-file-path=/usr/local/php537/lib' '--disable-debug' '--disable-rpath' '--enable-inline-optimization' '--with-curl' '--enable-gd-native-ttf' '--without-gdbm' '--with-gettext' '--with-iconv' '--with-pcre-regex' '--with-zlib' '--enable-bcmath' '--enable-exif' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-magic-quotes' '--enable-sockets' '--enable-sysvsem' '--enable-sysvshm' '--enable-wddx' '--with-pear' '--with-kerberos' '--with-ldap' '--with-mysql' '--with-mysqli' '--with-pgsql'
'--enable-ucd-snmp-hack' '--enable-shmop' '--enable-calendar' '--enable-mbstring' '--enable-mbregex' '--enable-pcntl'  '--with-gd' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/lib' '--enable-soap' '--with-mcrypt' '--with-xsl=/usr/lib' '--with-imap' '--with-imap-ssl' '--enable-zip' '--with-libzip=/usr/local' '--with-pdo-mysql' '--with-freetype-dir=/usr' '--with-openssl' '--enable-opcache=no'

I get following error:

I have the same problem with the latest libzip and php-7.2.3 on AWS EC2 Linux.

I have talked to the Libzip team and they advised that the problem is with PHP configure script.

Please advise if I can provide further help.

In my case, the issue was caused by the correct path to libzip library missing from the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. Adding it there solved it.

It is means the lib path not found, you can add the path to '/etc/', and  retry configure, like this:

cat '/usr/local/bin

ldconfig -v

good luck

stop giving entirely wrong advises

bin and includes don't belong to ldconfig at all and put /usr/local stuff to system wide configs defeats completly the purpose of compile own stuff without overwrite distribution packages

Does anybody still experience the originally reported issue with
any of the actively supported PHP versions[1]?
