the config.m4 make config file is missing the PHP_ADD_INCLUDE() macro. This is an issue with all versions that include --with-libzip=DIR from v5.6 to v7.2

I'm building multiple php versions on the server and do not have any intention of working with the base yum installed version. As such I didn't install the libzip-devel package that puts headers (albeit old ones) into the system include. I compiled libzip into /opt/libzip and used --with-libzip=/opt/libzip for the php compile. That is how I ran into the issue.

As a control, php compiles just fine without the libtidy-devel package installed and specifying --with-tidy=/opt/libtidy.

With the setup in ext/zip/config.m4 as is, make will look for zip.h in the system /usr/include and not in the include of the directory specified in --with-libzip=DIR. Without a system level installation of zip.h, this error occurs during make:

In file included from main/internal_functions_cli.c:36:0:
/usr/local/src/git-php72-build/php-src/ext/zip/php_zip.h:31:17: fatal error: zip.h: No such file or directory
 #include <zip.h>
compilation terminated.
make: *** [main/internal_functions_cli.lo] Error 1

Test script:
So without a system level installation of zip.h the following will fail during make with: fatal error: zip.h: No such file or directory

./configure \
--prefix=/opt/php72 \
--enable-zip \
--with-libzip=/opt/libzip \
--with-zlib && make

Expected result:
In file included from main/internal_functions_cli.c:36:0:
/usr/local/src/git-php72-build/php-src/ext/zip/php_zip.h:31:17: fatal error: zip.h: No such file or directory
 #include <zip.h>
compilation terminated.
make: *** [main/internal_functions_cli.lo] Error 1

Changed to compile failure, since it is not an issue with PECL:Zip

Me too. What should I do?

the patch provided should fix it. it is patching ext/zip/libzip_config.m4. 
it is simply adding PHP_ADD_INCLUDE macro in a couple places to make sure the compiler looks in the custom specified place first.

The issue may be worse if incompatible zip.h presents in search path,
e.g. old version installed as a system package to /usr/include.
Different alignment of structure fields might potentially lead
to crashes. Fortunately it seems that no declarations from
zip.h is used outside of ext/zip.

The patch attached earlier looks malformed.

In my opinion zip.h belongs to implementation details, so should not
be used outside of ext/zip, so php_zip.h should be split into
public and internal parts.

Minimal workaround without modification of php_zip.h is

I can reproduce this issue. I used this minimal patch to fix the issue.

I'm installing via PHP PECL module installer on WHM and I'm getting this error. What can I do to install this correctly?
