PHP 4.3 and Mac OS X
Subject:   Having problems with LDAP

Since 10.2 was released, I have been able to use the built-in OpenLDAP libraries when I have built PHP 4.2x with just a --with-ldap flag.

I am trying to build 4.3 for the first time with the following config line:
./configure --with-apxs --with-ldap --with-zlib --with-gd --enable-ftp --with-jpeg-dir=/sw --with-tiff-dir=/sw --with-pdflib=/sw --with-png-dir=/sw --with-mysql --with-freetype-dir=/sw --enable-sockets --with-xml --enable-ftp

As you can see from my /sw directory, I am using Fink's libraries for the graphic pieces,but the problem is with LDAP. I am getting the following error:
checking for LDAP support... yes
configure: error: Cannot find ldap libraries in /usr/lib.

I am using a 4.2.3 build of PHP on the same server with LDAP with no problem. Anyone have any ideas?

    In case someone else has this problem, this solution is to replace all references to with libldap.dylib in the config script.

    And I thought 4.3 was supposed to be ready for OS X...

      Nice catch!

      The problem is not with the main of php but with ext/ldap/config.m4. The line should be changed from
      "" to "libldap.$SHLIB_SUFFIX_NAME.3"

      Also, I'll do you one better. ;-) You probably want to change to liblber.$SHLIB_SUFFIX_NAME since the test you pointed to occurs if it can't find the former.

      I posted the patch at
      Please vote for it :-)

      BTW, Mac OS X Jaguar has a version of LDAP (used to replace the old NetInfo manager). So you don't really need fink for this...
      if you apply the patch above, you can then do
      ./configure --with-ldap=/usr


      Take care,
