Hi everybody,

i m building a new php-5.2.10 .deb package for my company and got a 
question along this. I succesfully builded my packet but if i install it 
over dpkg -i the module libphp5.so is always missing. My ./configure 
system call is :
./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/bin/apxs2 --with-apache2 
--with-config-file-path=/etc/php5 --enable-cli --with-pear --with-mysql 
--with-config-file=/etc/php5/php.ini --with-config-file-path=/etc/php5/ 
--with-mysql --with-openssl --with-pdo-mysql --with-xsl --with-gd 
--enable-suhosin --enable-fastcgi --enable-force-cgi-redirect 

is there any parameter missing which i need for building the libphp5.so 
i know for sure that this module isnt installed because i set up 
LoadModule lines in the httpd.conf. And if i copy the module from 
another server into the /usr/lib/apache2/modules it works correctly.

It would be also helpful if any of the maintainers can tell me how they 
build php packages with that libphp module. Are there any documentations 

it would be nice to hear something of you because building packages is 
quite fun and a very nice work.

best regards
