                        POSTGRESQL BUG REPORT TEMPLATE

Your name		:	Joël Brogniart
Your email address	: Joel(dot)Brogniart(at)univ-lyon2(dot)fr

System Configuration
  Architecture (example: Intel Pentium)  	: Apple iMac G3 400Mhz - Apple PowerBook G4 400 Mhz

  Operating System (example: Linux 2.0.26 ELF) 	: Mac OS X 10.0.3

  PostgreSQL version (example: PostgreSQL-7.1.1):   PostgreSQL-7.1.1 - PostgreSQL-7.1.2

  Compiler used (example:  gcc 2.95.2)		: cc 2.95.2

Please enter a FULL description of your problem:
After having compiled, tested and installed PostgreSQL successfully a PHP 4.0.5 configure fails.

Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible: 
First configure, make, install PostgreSQL (full French description on <>).

user% get
user% tar xzf postgresql-7.1.2.tar.gz
user% cd postgresql-7.1.2
user% ./configure --enable-locale --enable-multibyte=UNICODE --enable-unicode-conversion --enable-syslog
user% make
user% sudo make install

Then try to install PHP 4.0.5 with PostgreSQL support.

user% wget
user% wget
user% tar xzf php-4.0.5.tar.gz
user% cp php-4.0.5/build/
user% cd php-4.0.5
user% ./configure --with-xml --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-pgsql=/usr/local/pgsql --with-zlib=/usr/lib

Configure fails with a bad zlib error.

If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:

I tried different PHP config option and I found that the problem where somewhere from libpq.a, so I used the following command and then configuration, compilation and installation of PHP worked.

user% sudo ranlib /usr/local/pgsql/lib/libpq.a

Best regards.
