it turns out, that you were correct. and to add insult to injury, the package that was created is not even depositing the pcre.so into /usr/local/lib/php/20050922 directory, which is fully populated on the build server. at this point im not sure where to go. so far, it doesnt seem like this project is going to produce a useable set of pre-built packages from my build server that can be used on another system for a fast-as-possible system recovery. not beaten yet, jonathan _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
