I tried to compile 7.1.2 as usually but this time ./configure fail with these error:

    checking for cURL in default path... not found
    configure: error: Please reinstall the libcurl distribution - easy.h should be in /include/curl/

I'm on Debian Stretch (9) 64 bits.

With 'locate easy.h' i found libcurl4-openssl-dev is installed in /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/curl when ./configure expect it in/include/curl/`

libcurl4-openssl-dev on debian Jessie install curl in /usr/include/curl/ when Stretch install curl in /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/curl.

With the last PHP version i compiled (7.1.1), i had no problems, but this time it failed.

To compile:
./buildconf --force && ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/php --with-config-file-path=/etc/php/lib --enable-bcmath --with-bz2 --with-zlib --enable-zip --enable-calendar --enable-exif --enable-ftp --with-gettext --with-gd --with-jpeg-dir --with-png-dir --with-freetype-dir --with-xpm-dir --enable-mbstring --enable-mysqlnd --with-mysqli=mysqlnd --with-pdo-mysql=mysqlnd --with-openssl --enable-intl --enable-soap --with-readline --with-curl --with-mcrypt --with-xsl --enable-sockets

curl and libcurl4-openssl-dev packages are installed via apt-get.

I tried with --with-curl=/usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/curl/ but it doesn't work.

I'm not sure but i think something change in libcurl4-openssl-dev package in debian 8 jessie (…) and debian 9 stretch (…‌​). We can see on those two urls that path is not the same for the same package. Jessie version match requirement (/usr/include/curl/easy.h) while stretch version don't match requirement (/usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/curl/easy.h)

While this is obviously a bug in debian "curl-config not giving correct build options", this have been fixed in 7.0+ by;a=commit;h=3fd7d819b8ea164bdf255cddcd0a1b1d156f4a3b

But IMHO using dpkg command is not acceptable, so a better fix have been applied in 7.2;a=commit;h=b8c6ce91b24d314fe9f9996a17942b63ecec249b
