Glib has *nothing* to do with libc. > > My last install supercedes the port. I dont remember why or how. > Anyway, I am nervous about breaking something.. it has been awhile.

(You can find libc.so.6 in /compat/linux/lib). You need to enable linux compatibility on your PHP extension. Run `file /my/extension' -- if it says anything about ELF, run `brandelf -f 3 /my/extension'. Now running `file /my/extension' should return something like: [probably not exact] /my/extension: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (GNU/Linux)...
