Bug #8265 Compile fails for oci8 with Oracle 8.0.4 - missing libs

Status: Closed Package: OCI8 related
PHP Version: 4.0.3pl1 OS: UnixWare 7.1.1
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Compiling php-4.0.3pl1 on UnixWare 7.1.1:

CFLAGS=-Kthread \
CC=cc \
./configure --with-apache=../apache_1.3.14 \
            --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql \
            --with-oci8=/home2/app/oracle/product/8.0.4 \
            --with-gdbm \
            --with-db3 \

All paths are correct, LD_LIBRARY_PATH is correct, etc.  (-Kthread is necessary for linking, because my db3 lib was
comiled with thread support.)

configure fails with "Something is likely to be messed up here..."

debug.log shows:
cc -o conftest -Kthread   -L/usr/ucblib -L/usr/ucblib -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql -L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql

[ 30-odd other "skg..." symbols not found...]

(Don't worry about the -lthread warning, it's harmless here.)

A quick check with nm finds the desirable symbols in Oracle's libgeneric, which itself requires symbols from Oracle's libmm.  configure only links 4 Oracle libs (instead of the lumbering list of Oracle libs I'm accustomed to seeing).

I modified the pertinent part of configure to add the two libs (requiring 188 new lines of code in configure!), and configure succeeds.  (I modified configure, rather than edit the .m4 files and run buildconfig, because when I tried that the results differed in much more than the two Oracle libs).

Has this configuration for Oracle 8.0 compiled clean elsewhere?

Thanks for your input, 
Rob Roselius

could you give me a login onto that box?

No feedback. If this happens with soon to be released PHP 4.0.5 too, reopen this bug report.
