Description bjn 2000-01-11 14:12:05 EST
When building from the php SRPM, during the compile of the embedded
imap-4.5 package, mail.c does an #include <linux/limits.h>, which will fail
if the kernel-source RPM isn't installed.  The work-around is to install
the kernel-source RPM.  The permanent fix is probably to include just plain
<limits.h>, but I didn't try this or look at the source.

Incidentally, why does the php SRPM bundle and build its own imap-4.5
package?  It should just require the imap-4.5 RPM that comes with RedHat,
as a build prerequisite.
Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-01-13 21:40:59 EST
the next release of php doesn't include imap, instead it accesses the static
c-client library provided from the new imap-devel package.

No library was provided before, so the code was included in the RPM directly.
