Package: php4-dev
Version: 4:4.4.0-1
Severity: normal


I'm not sure if this bug belongs to php4-dev or to another php4
package like libapache-mod-php4.

I've been using my own php4-yaz package build for php4:4.3.10
based on the work of David Everly. The build script makes the
package depend on the phpapi version taken in

With the 4.3.10 php packages, php4-dev defines PHP_API_VERSION 20020918
in php.h and libapache-mod-php4 provides phpapi-20020918 so everyting's

With the 4.4.0-1 php packages, php4-dev still defines 
PHP_API_VERSION 20020918 in php.h but libapache-mod-php4 now provides
phpapi-20050606 so the newly built php4-yaz does not install.

If that's not a php4-dev bug but a bug in the build script I'm
using, I apology.
