When running httpd I got the following error:
Floating point exception - core dumped.

After analysing of core file I found that error is here:
php-4.0.4/ext/standard/crypt.c (109):
srand48((unsigned int) time(0) * getpid() * (php_combined_lcg() * 10000.0));

I have changed this line with:
srand48((long)time(0) * (long)getpid() * (long)(php_combined_lcg() * 10000.0));

and error disappeared...

This was NOT fixed in cvs. Another user reported the segfault, after changing the suggested line, it compiled and worked fine.

Fixed in CVS now.
