I literally just had to work through building PHP today (so that I
could then build the MnoGoSearch module).  As all I needed was the
.so for mnogosearch to plug into my otherwise default packaged
Debian PHP setup I used the followingconfigure line:

  ../configure --prefix=/usr --with-regex=system
  --with-config-file-path=/etc/php4/apache --disable-rpath
  --enable-memory-limit --enable-calendar --enable-sysvsem
  --enable-sysvshm --enable-track-vars --enable-trans-sid
  --disable-debug --disable-static --with-ndbm --enable-ftp
  --with-gettext --enable-sockets --with-mnogosearch=shared,/usr

Suffice to say, it built the appropriate mnogosearch.so and I was
happy.  This is on 4.0.5RC2.  

For you debian-ites out there 4.0.5 RC[1|2|3] are available fresh
from the packager at:


I've not (yet) tried RC3.  RC1 and RC2 have both been happy here.

Which is why I'm not going to spend the time now to help figure this
out.  Time to hit the sack.
