[php-maint] Bug#397179: suhosin patch

Hi all,

it's nice to hear that this patch will be included in Debian.

I'm currently using PHP with suhosin patch (and suhosin module) on
several production systems (i386, amd64, some still running php5.1)
without problems (only had to increase some varfilter limits in the
module configuration).

The only problem I encountered is a build problem:
the patch modifies both configure and configure.in (which is nice if
suhosin is the only patch to be applied), but this prevents recreation
of configure (which is required by several Debian patches to
configure.in) due to timestamp magic on fast machines.
My fix: I just removed the configure specific patch from the suhosin
patch, letting the build system take care of configure recreation.

Happy New Year!
