ok, I had to patch php-4.0.3pl1 in order to compile php --with-sybase-ct using freetds 
libs (patch at the end of this report)

the problem is that FreeTDS does not have a couple of files that php looks for when 
compiling --with-sybase-ct support, those files (if I'm not mistaken) are:

now, I've read the bug report #7595 which is 
directly related to this issue, in fact the patch I built is strictly based on the 
patch laszlo talks about on that bug-report. But this one works on 4.0.3pl1 

Basically: freeTDS is useless on php4 unless you patch php, so It's more a php issue 
than a freetds issue, would be possible for you guys to help in the next releases of 
php by including something like --with-freetds instead of --with-sybase-ct (or 
something like it) in a way that it wont look for those missing files?

Well, unless php team incorporates a way to compile freetds support without hacking 
php we'll just have to patch php from version to version, (which is not bad for me 
since I already learned how to do it, but for the rest of the guys who are starting 
with php... well it can be a real pain!)

and here's the patch I've used to succesfully compile freeTDS as --with-sybase-ct 
(maybe it has some errors, it's my first patch EVER.. go figure :))

php4.0.3pl1 'make' fails when using ./configure --with-sybase-ct=/usr/local/freetds 
with the following error:

make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

here's the details of my installation:

freeTDS from cvs (version 0.51)
was compiled with:
./configure --with-tdserver=4.2 --enable-msdblib --enable-dbmfix --with-gnu-ld 
--enable-shared --enable-static
make && make install
(everything went ok, no errors)

then at php4.0.3pl1 src dir:
./configure --with-apxs=/www/bin/apxs --with-mysql=/usr/local --with-ftp 
--with-gettext --with-config-file-path=/etc --disable-debug --enable-track-vars 
--with-pgsql=/usr/local/pgsql --with-sybase-ct=/usr/local/freetds

as far as I can tell that required libsybctl file is not available at the freetds 
distribution, it is available though, at the sybase-common-11.9.2-3.i386.rpm (from 

I'll now try to mix files from freetds and sybase-common but I never really liked to 
play Mr. Frankenstein. 

anyway, any feedback would be great :)
