Why are you doing it that way ?

Use the ports tree under /usr/ports and all of the deps and build
requirements will be handled auto-majically

i.e install portupgrade then work from there.

Subject: PHP Configuration


I'm trying to get PHP running on FreeBSD 5.3 with the GD graphics =
and FreeType (TTF font support) on Apache 1.31

PHP compiles and works OK, also most of GD appears to be working fine, =
functions relating to TTF fonts aren't available.

The configure_php file I'm using to compile is as follows:

--with-apxs=3D/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs --with-gd
--with-zlib-dir=3D/usr/src/php/php-5.0.4/ext/zlib --enable-gd-native-ttf


I'm probably missing a required option somewhere in there.=20

I'd be much obliged if anyone who has a working FreeBSD/PHP/GD/FreeType
configuration could point me towards a configure_php option string which
does the job.

Many thanks for any help.
