Source: php5
Version: 5.6.26+dfsg-1
Severity: serious
Tags: stretch sid
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: qa-ftbfs-20161021 qa-ftbfs
Justification: FTBFS on amd64


During a rebuild of all packages in sid, your package failed to build on

Relevant part (hopefully):
> checking for mcrypt_module_open in -lmcrypt... yes
> checking for MSSQL support via FreeTDS... yes, shared
> checking for dnet_addr in -ldnet_stub... no
> checking for MySQL support... yes, shared
> checking for specified location of the MySQL UNIX socket... /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
> configure: error: Cannot find libmysqlclient_r under /usr.
> Note that the MySQL client library is not bundled anymore!
> debian/rules:275: recipe for target 'configure-apache2-stamp' failed

If the failure looks somehow time/timezone related:
Note that this rebuild was performed without the 'tzdata' package
installed in the chroot. tzdata used be (transitively) part of
build-essential, but it no longer is. If this package requires it to
build, it should be added to build-depends. For the release team's
opinion on this, see

If the failure looks LSB-related:
similarly to tzdata, lsb-base is not installed in the build chroot.

The full build log is available from:

About the archive rebuild: The rebuild was done on EC2 VM instances from
Amazon Web Services, using a clean, minimal and up-to-date chroot. Every
failed build was retried once to eliminate random failures.
