PHP install error

    For some reason PHP always fails to install. I have never seen Litespeed install PHP correctly since I started using it more than a year ago. The error is always the same:

    Build complete.
    Don't forget to run 'make test'.
    Installing PHP
    Installing PHP SAPI module:       litespeed
    :No such file or directory
    Installing build environment:     /usr/local/lsws/lsphp5/lib/php/build/
    Installing header files:          /usr/local/lsws/lsphp5/include/php/
    Installing helper programs:       /usr/local/lsws/lsphp5/bin/

      page: php-config.1
    1 error
    *** Error code 1 (continuing)
    `install' not remade because of errors.
    **ERROR** Could not install PHP
    As the compile did complete successfully I've always simply fixed this by doing something like:

    'cp /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.3.1/sapi/litespeed/php /usr/local/lsws/fcgi-bin/lsphp5'

    As I use FreeBSD exclusively this might be a FreeBSD specific bug, I have noticed it on 6-RELEASE, 6-STABLE, 7-STABLE, 8-RC1, 8-STABLE and 9-CURRENT.

    I'm guessing the compiler writes the lsapi php binary somewhere else on FreeBSD or something similar.

    This is still present in 4.0.13...

    I've investigated:

    [root@virasena /opt/lsws]# /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/
    Manually running installation script: /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/
    Running at background with command:
    /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/ 1> /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/buildphp_1270060006.9.log 2>&1
    [: xroot: unexpected operator
    First, this doesn't run in the background as stated.

    Second, there's an error due to:

    if [  "x$INST_USER" == "xroot" ]; then
       chown -R lsadm:lsadm /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12
       check_errs $? "Could not chown to lsadm for direcotry /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12"
    in &

    '==' is not a valid operator for a test evaluation. At least it isn't on BSD. You should be using '=' there.

    The actual install error is due to the following:

    [root@virasena /opt/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12]# make -k install-sapi
    Installing PHP SAPI module:       litespeed
    :No such file or directory
    *** Error code 1 (continuing)
    [root@virasena /opt/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12]# make -k -n install-sapi
    echo "Installing PHP SAPI module:       litespeed"
    /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12/build/shtool mkdir -p /opt/lsws/lsphp5/bin
    if test ! -r /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12/libs/; then  for i in 0.0.0 0.0 0; do  if test -r /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12/libs/$i; then  ln -s /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12/libs/$i /usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12/libs/;  break;  fi;  done;  fi
    [root@virasena /opt/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12]#
    Notice the blank line after the two commands. Somehow make is trying to execute an empty command... This is due to this in '/usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12/Makefile':

    install-sapi: $(OVERALL_TARGET)   
            @echo "Installing PHP SAPI module:       $(PHP_SAPI)"
            -@$(mkinstalldirs) $(INSTALL_ROOT)$(bindir)
            -@if test ! -r $(phptempdir)/libphp$(PHP_MAJOR_VERSION).$(SHLIB_DL_SUFFIX_NAME); then \
                    for i in 0.0.0 0.0 0; do \
                            if test -r $(phptempdir)/libphp$(PHP_MAJOR_VERSION).$(SHLIB_DL_SUFFIX_NAME).$$i; then \
                                    $(LN_S) $(phptempdir)/libphp$(PHP_MAJOR_VERSION).$(SHLIB_DL_SUFFIX_NAME).$$i $(phptempdir)/libphp$(PHP_MAJOR_VERSION).$(SHLIB_DL_SUFFIX_NAME); \
                                    break; \
                            fi; \
                    done; \
    The variable INSTALL_IT should have been set in '/usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12/sapi/litespeed/config.m4', even if not used, otherwise it results in trying to execute "". Adding


    to '/usr/local/lsws/phpbuild/php-5.2.12/sapi/litespeed/config.m4' will fix this.

    I'm quite concerned that apparently you haven't fully tested at least the last three releases on BSD and that a small error like this isn't fixed in over two months. If you aren't taking the BSD platform seriously I'd like to know.

    (Also, there's two spelling/grammar errors in this: 'Running at background with command:' -> 'Running command in the background:' and 'direcotry' -> 'directory'.)

    Since litespeed SAPI is included in PHP >5.3 distributions I reported this bug to PHP, see:

    As I noticed that 'php-litespeed-5.3.tgz' is downloaded anyway and extracted over 'sapi/litespeed', I urge you to fix this as well.
