They were having problems with the threading system. Most of FreeBSD is not
threaded (most people do not build threaded apps by default) and their
libraries require it...:(

You can not use Linux libs in a FreeBSD binary. You would have to
compile a Linux binary of PHP.

It would not work anyway. Again, you can not use Linux libs in a FreeBSD
binary. Linux libs belong under /compat/linux/usr/lib or thereabouts.

I could never get the PHP module to work on FreeBSD (4.3 and 4.4).
(I've got the native libs. The problem is that they have to be linked into
a threaded program.)
I just use the following code:
# Location of the pfpro binary.
$pfpro = "/www2/bin/pfpro";
# Location of the certs
# The args to call the binary with
$args = "USER=$vsInfo&VENDOR=$vsInfo&PARTNER=verisign&" .
# Put together the command string
$command = "$pfpro $vsInfo 443 \"$args\" 10";
$result = `$command`;
Please note the putenv! You have to have this!
Also look at the back ticks for $result.
This should also work with the Linux binary...

Install your libs under /compat/linux/usr/lib or somewhere and then update the
ld hints/config file for linux.
The linux program should work fine then.
Hope this helps.
