Operating System: Linux (SuSE 7.1)
PHP Version: 4.0.6
New Comment:

ah... last time i tried to use cvs it was so annoying i 
decided it's an unnecessary evil. I was under the 
impression they were patches. well, whatever.

anyhow, in the latest cvs, this problem is caught by the 
makefile. well, sort of. in config.log i see normal 
``undefined reference to `whatever''' lines.. all starting 
with pam_. It can't find the libpam library. Which is 
weird, since it's in my LD_LIBRARY_PATH and all...

The message configure itself gives is:
``configure: error: This c-client library is build with 
SSL support.'', and the message to ``Add 
--with-imap-ssl<=DIR> to your configure line. Check 
config.log for details.''

The relevant part of config.log:
configure:24000: checking for IMAP support
configure:24287: checking for pam_start in -lpam
configure:24306: gcc -o conftest -g -O2  -DEAPI_MM

    builtin and then its argument prototype would still 
apply.  */
char pam_start();
int main() {
; return 0; }

Goto, and get the latest .gz. It works exactly the same as the official 
release, and is lagging no more than 3 hours to CVS - no problem in this case

Sure. I basically copied it from the phpinfo page that was 
running on the php module that came with SuSE 7.1, and 
tweaked it a bit. Like i removed the things that kept me 
from compiling it, and removed stuff i knew i wouldn't 

There's a handful of other functions it's complaining 
about. Bloody hell, why can't stuff like this ever just 
WORK? *grumble*

Ermm anyhow. I never used CVS.. I never programmed 
something big enough to make it useful enough. gimme a 
bunch of commands to type and i'll do it.

./configure --prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin 
--libdir=/usr/lib --with-exec-dir=/usr/lib/php/bin 
--with-pgsql=/usr --with-gd=/usr/local 
--with-tiff-dir=/usr --with-jpeg-dir=/usr 
--with-png-dir=/usr --with-xpm-dir=/usr/X11R6 
--with-pdflib=/usr --with-zlib=yes --with-xml --with-ttf 
--with-readline --with-ftp --with-java --with-curl 
--enable-versioning --with-ming=/usr --enable-bcmath 
--enable-trans-sid --with-imap 
--enable-inline-optimization --enable-track-vars 
--enable-magic-quotes --enable-safe-mode --enable-sockets
--enable-sysvsem --enable-sysvshm --enable-shmop 
--enable-calendar --enable-exif --enable-ftp 
--enable-memory-limit --enable-wddx 
--with-exec-dir=/usr/lib/apache/bin --without-mysql

What was the configure line used to configure PHP?
Could you please try the latest CVS snapshot from since there 
have been few fixes
in it.

I just compiled PHP 4.0.6 from the sources, (well, after 
fighting with it a bit, but never mind that) and apache 
won't load the module. When i try to start apache:

Syntax error on line 147 of /etc/httpd/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/lib/apache/ into server: 
undefined symbol: pam_end

(line 147 is the one that loads the module)

>From both someone else's report and my trial and error, i 
figured it is the imap module that is the problem.
I do have the libpam library and the function is in that 

# objdump -T /lib/ | grep pam_end
00001b40 g    DF .text  0000025f  Base        pam_end

The thing is that the php module isn't linked with this. 
Now i don't know enough about all this funky dynamic stuff 
to fix this.. (or even know for sure that's the problem) 
but it strikes me that if the imap module depends on this 
library it should put that in its makefile or whereever.
I can live without imap, but i do want it sometime..
