xmldiff version(s): xmldiff 1.1.2, 1.1.1, 1.1.0
PHP (cli) (built: Feb  5 2020 16:51:32) ( NTS )

**Seems related to:**

Repro (on a clean install of 18.04):
1. apt update && apt dist-upgrade -y
2. add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
3. apt update && apt install php7.3 php7.3-dev phpxml -y
4. pecl channel-upgrade
5. pecl install xmldiff -> "recipe for target 'xmldiff.lo' failed"

To confirm, I downloaded the tgz package and tried to manually build:
1. wget
2. tar -xvzf xmldiff-1.1.2.tgz
3. cd xmldiff-1.1.2
4. phpize
5. ./configure
6. make -> "recipe for target 'xmldiff.lo" failed"

I have the full compiler output from the manual build if you would like (it's about 300k, and there is no obvious place to attach it here.)

Please provide the compile error that is printed, there should be something before the "recipe failed", which is just a message from "make".

If you would like to post the full log, I'd suggest

I see a lot of these, so I am also making the output available here.

I'm experiencing the same issue on Ubuntu 20.04 and PHP 7.4.3 (cli) (built: May 26 2020 12:24:22) ( NTS )

xmldiff version(s): xmldiff 1.1.2

Running make I got plenty of this error:

Is this still an issue with latest xdiff (2.1.0)?
