When building PHP with shared modules I found that php wouldn't startup any more when removing one of the modules and dependencies of the system (in this case ext/odbc).

This is because libiodbc is linked into the different SAPIs:

I traced the problem via Makefile target BUILD_CLI which include EXTRA_LIBS, which has this extra library added.

When looking around in the configure file I found that EXTRA_LIBS is a concatenation of $EXTRA_LIBS $DLIBS $LIBS.
Adding some debugging found me that LIBS is the culprit in this case.

Continuing my search I found that LIBS is used in quite a few places throughout the m4 files and that most of the time they save the value in a tempvar and restore it later, but I did find that the PHP_ADD_LIBRARY macro in aclocal.m4 and acinclude.m4 contains LIBS as the 5th argument. This in my opinion is the most likely cause for not unsetting LIBS.

I tried to change the name LIBS to BLAHLIBS, but that breaks the libxml checks.

Issue found in php 5.6.30, 7.0.19 and 7.1.5

"When building PHP with shared modules I found that php wouldn't startup any more when removing one of the modules and dependencies of the system" - how is that a bug? when you remove sharde libraries software is linked to you break that software

hence package managers was invited and when you try to remove such dependencies when you built PHP as package it would suggest to remove PHP or just say "No"

Well, the point is, this is for a revamp of the OpenBSD package(s). So your point is kind of mute...

ODBC is in no way related to the PHP core and should not be linked to it.

The attached patch is based on php7.1.6, but works equally well on 5.6 and 7.0 and fixes the issue for me.
