Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 473232
PHP built without expat
Last modified: 2008-11-27 06:14:09 EST
Description of problem:
There is a mistake in the build of php. The flag --with-expat-dir=/usr should read --with-libexpat-dir=/usr. This means that expat-type functions are built against libexpat2 which has known and reported bugs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
PHP Version 5.2.6
Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo '<?php phpinfo();' | php | grep -i expat
Erroneous flag is displayed.
EXPAT Version => expat_2.0.1
