I compiled PHP version 8.0.13 with following options:

./configure --build=x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu --host=x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu --prefix=/opt/ews-24-80/php --libdir=/opt/ews-24-80/php/lib64 --with-config-file-path=/usr/local/etc/ews-24-80/php --with-apxs2=/opt/ews-24-80/apache2/bin/apxs --with-openssl --with-libxml-dir --with-pcre-regex --with-zlib --with curl=/opt/ews-24-80/curl

There are no errors indicating anything went wrong in the compiling process, however when running the test script shared below I get an error with Undefined constant. Using /opt/ews-24-80/curl directly from the CLI works fine.

CURL version used: 7.80.0

Same setup works fine with PHP 7.3

Test script:

Expected result:
Get the actual value of CURLINFO_TOTAL_TIME_T constant.

Actual result:
#0 {main}
  thrown in /curl.php on line 2

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Undefined constant "CURLINFO_TOTAL_TIME_T" in /curl.php on line 2

Error: Undefined constant "CURLINFO_TOTAL_TIME_T" in /curl.php on line 2

Call Stack:
    0.0003     390752   1. {main}() /curl.php:0

> --with curl=/opt/ews-24-80/curl

As of PHP 7.4.0, that argument is ignored; instead, pkg-config is
used to find the location of libcurl, and in your case it likely
finds an older version somewhere else.  Use PKG_CONFIG_PATH to
tell pkg-config where to look for your desired libcurl version.

Anyhow, that pkg-config change is not documented for curl yet[1],
so I'm switching to doc issue.

Good news, but this ticket should stay open until the docs are
