I have research this issue over google and mailing list and I haven't been able to find a solution to my problem. I want to write a PHPProxyServer under CYGWIN since I don't have access to a linux box. I need the PCTNL functions so I could fork() processes, which is not supported under windows. I try decending into the extensions directory in PHP src provided by cygwinports and try to compile the extension myself. Everything seems to work fine up until the desired extension *.dll wasn't created and "make install" failed with "cp: target `/usr/lib/php/20060613/#INST@3872#' is not a directory". So I decided to try to compile the newest version of PHP available, epic failure because apparently, PHP ./configure doesn't support autoconf 2.65, only 2.13 which isn't available in the repos. I was hoping that maybe someone might have already have already compiled PCNTL extension available that I could download for PHP 5.2.6 or the new PHP binaries with PCNTL enabled? Or any support to compile PHP under cygwin?
