Description:
------------
Up to 7.3.15 supports this PHP compile switch:

--with-curl=shared,${BUILD_TARGET_CURL}

where ${BUILD_TARGET_CURL} = the folder into which our latest curl compile is located (currently 7.68.0)

However 7.4 produces this error:

checking for cURL support... yes
checking for libcurl >= 7.15.5... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libcurl >= 7.15.5) were not met:

No package 'libcurl' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables CURL_CFLAGS
and CURL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I'm not sure what is going on but I can't seem to get PKG_CONFIG_PATH / CURL_CFLAGS / CURL_LIBS to have any effect, no matter what I set them to.

thanks

updating the title to hopefully be more meaningful.

First, find the location of libcurl.pc; then set PKG_CONFIG_PATH
to the directory of that file.  E.g. if curl is installed in
opt/curl/, libcurl.pc is likely in opt/curl/lib/pkgconfig/, so do

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/curl/lib/pkgconfig/ ./configure …

thank you. The --with-curl issue is resolved by applying your recommendation however it appears that a number of switches are now "broken" in 7.4

--with-icu-dir, --enable-libxml, --enable-wddx, --enable-hash, --enable-curl, --with-gd, --with-jpeg-dir, --with-webp-dir, --with-freetype-dir, --with-libxml-dir, --enable-zip, --with-libzip, --with-pcre-regex, --with-pcre-dir

Unfortunately I can only set PKG_CONFIG_PATH once, which means that I then cant sort out ICU or any of the other compiled locations.

So it seems to me that a more workable approach in my scenario would be to use CURL_CFLAGS and CURL_LIBS instead of PKG_CONFIG_PATH. 

Then I could use  ICU_CFLAGS and ICU_LIBS for ICU and so on for all the other switches for which I need to set library location.

With this in mind I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know what i would need to set 
CURL_CFLAGS and CURL_LIBS to.  (from what you tell me I will then work out what to set all the others to as I'm assuming the same conceptual approach would apply) 

thanks again!

Indeed, but the variable has the same format as PATH, i.e. it
supports a colon delimited list of paths.

And of course, this needs to be documented in the PHP manual
proper (not only in the migration guide[1]).

I have copied all my *.pc files into a single PKGINFO directory and set PKG_CONFIG_PATH=${PKGINFO directory}

This seems to resolve all my --with-zzzzz issues, however now I am seeing the below issue (which is a provided PHP extension I can find under the PHP source folder). ...right now I can only assume the problem is being introduced because PKG_CONFIG_PATH has been set (as we have never seen this issue prior to 7.4)

I would really appreciate some help with this as it is causing real problems for our install. thanks
