Description Jay Lee 2005-04-01 11:41:19 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050322 Firefox/1.0.2 Red Hat/1.0.2-1.4.1

Description of problem:
Attempting to rebuild the php SRPM in order to add the php-mssql rpm will not work on x86_64.  The required FreeTDS library has been downloaded and built as an rpm.  However the ./configure script looks only in /usr/lib for the neccessary libtds.a while libtds.a is in /usr/lib64/ on x86_64 builds.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.3.0-3.2.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
On x86_64 system:

1.  Download the latest FreeTDS stable source:
wget ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/ALPHA/freetds/stable/freetds-stable.tgz

2.  Build freetds RPMS:
mv freetds-stable.tgz freetds-0.62.4.tar.gz; rpmbuild -ta freetds-0.62.4.tar.gz

3.  Install freetds and freetds-devel
  rpm -Uvh freetds-0.62.4-1.x86_64.rpm freetds-devel-0.62.4-1.x86_64.rpm

4.  Acquire php SRPM:
  up2date --get-source php

5.  Attempt to rebuild php with mssql support included:
  rpmbuild --rebuild --define '_with_mssql 1' \
  /var/spool/up2date/php-4.3.9-3.2.src.rpm

Fails with:

<snipped ./configure output>
checking for MSSQL support via FreeTDS... yes, shared
configure: error: Could not find /usr/lib/libtds.a


Actual Results:  rpmbuild fails, no php-mssql.x86_64 generated.

Expected Results:  rpmbuild succeeds and generates the needed php-mssql rpm

Additional info:

modifying php-4.3.9/ext/mssql/config.m4 to look for libtds.a in both lib and lib64 fixes the issue (patch not included because my I'm sure I didn't fix it the "right way", just works for me).
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2005-04-12 09:45:59 EDT
Please don't be afraid to attach patches, however ugly ;) But essentially yes
the hacky way is used in PHP 4.3.x.  I've fixed it more cleanly upstream.
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2005-04-22 12:07:28 EDT
An experimental test source RPM is available here:

which should fix this issue; please report any feedback from testing.
