Now that we're talking about apache 2 here, is there some chance we 
could include PHP as a module in apache?  The 
apache-php-postgresql/mysql framework has been waiting for a long time 
in cygwin now.  I remember around 2 years ago that the framework (at 
least with postgresql) used to be in cygwin.

There is just one problem.  PHP *can* compile in cygwin but the wrong 
thing is compiled.   (I'm trying to configure PHP as a module that will 
load into apache)  Doing a ./configure, make, runs with no errors.  
However, when doing a make install, here's what crops up:

$ make install
Installing PHP SAPI module:       apache
apxs:Error: file libs/ is not a DSO
make: *** [install-sapi] Error 1

The thing is, libs/ does not exist but only libs/libpp4.a

I remember someone saying before that there is a problem in libtool.  
However, I don't quite understand how libtool works.

Here's what the make warning says:

libtool: link: warning: undefined symbols not allowed in i686-pc-cygwin 
shared libraries

If anyone could help me build php4 on cygwin, I would volunteer as its 

Thank you very much!
