btw. this is wrong: --with-zlib-dir=./ext/zlib

(ext/zlib is NOT the zlib library, it's the PHP extension that uses

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself. For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit [url][/url] as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

The problem is that your MySQL libs (external ones) have a problem,
hence the compiler error you are seeing. This is not a PHP bug.

Yes, I've tried compiling with the bundled libraries, which works
(sorry, should have said that), but would like to use the client
libraries included with MySQL rather than PHP for the reasons outlined
at [url][/url].

We're also using Apache's mod_perl on this server.

Sounds like a problem with your mysql library, have you tried compiling
with bundled mysql libraries?

I'm trying to configure PHP to use the client libraries for MySQL
4.0.16, which I downloaded as a binary (Solaris 9 64-bit) and installed
in /usr/local/mysql.

When I attempt to configure PHP using:

../configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql
--with-apache=../apache_1.3.29 --with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl
--with-zlib-dir=./ext/zlib --enable-track-vars --enable-libgcc

I get the following error:

checking for mysql_close in -lmysqlclient... no
checking for mysql_error in -lmysqlclient... no
configure: error: mysql configure failed. Please check config.log for
more information.

Config.log shows:

configure:55581: checking for mysql_error in -lmysqlclient
configure:55600: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -D_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS
-R/usr/local/mysql/lib -L/usr/local/mysql/lib -R/usr/ucblib

ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to conftest

These are not the final lines, but they seem most relevant; I can post
more if necessary.

Is it possible that PHP is looking for a 32-bit MySQL binary and
crashing when it finds a 64-bit? If so, are there plans to support
64-bit MySQL?
