Get a new snapshot. You might have got some errors
during transfer. (I tested the latest snapshot and it works just fine)

I think I spoke too soon... It's still problematic, even with the latest CVS. I think 
the reason it succeeded was because there was no 'ext' subdirectory in the

Thanks Jani - The latest snapshot seems to configure without errors. It whined about 
my IMAP path, but I just used --with-imap, and it seems to have configured OK.

I fixed something like this in the CVS..but I can't remember
now what and where it was. :(

Please try the latest CVS snapshot from

On a clean php-4.0.6 distribution, (untar the file and then cd to the directory) the 
following configure command causes problems:

./configure --with-mysql --with-apache=../apache_1.3.12 --enable-track-vars 
--with-gd=/usr/local --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local --with-xpm-dir=/usr/X11R6

checking whether to include GD support... yes
checking whether to enable truetype string function in gd... no
checking for the location of libjpeg... yes
checking for jpeg_read_header in -ljpeg... no
configure: error: libjpeg not found!

Here is the config.log entry:

--------- CUT HERE ------
configure:17964: checking for jpeg_read_header in -ljpeg
configure:17985: gcc -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c -ljpeg
     -l -lcrypt -lresolv -lm -ldl -lnsl  -lresolv 1>&5
/usr/i386-linux/bin/ld: cannot open -l-lcrypt: No such file or directory
configure: failed program was:
#line 17974 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
/* Override any gcc2 internal prototype to avoid an error.  */
/* We use char because int might match the return type of a gcc2
    builtin and then its argument prototype would still apply.  */
char jpeg_read_header();

int main() {
; return 0; }

--------- CUT HERE ------

Note the extra -l with no library before -l crypt. This is what is causing the test to 
fail, despite the jpeg library having being isntalled correctly. Compiling the same 
test program without the extra -l succeeds. 



P.S. Are there any workarounds to this problem? I'm still trying to figure out which 
part of the configure command is adding the extra -l.
