mbstring error in phpMyAdmin

Have enabled mbstring in my PHP, however phpMyAdmin is showing that it is not installed. Here is my configure script. While this is RHEL 5 box, I built apache and php by hand not from rpms so please don't tell me to install php-mbstring.

./configure' '--with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs' '--with-mysql' '--with-mysqli' '--with-pgsql' '--with-mcrypt=/usr/local/bin' '--enable-mbstring=shared'

Thank you

You have build mbstring as a shared library, that's why phpmyadmin cannot find it. You could use just "--enable-mbstring" to built in php.
So, either recompile php, or adjust LD_LIBRARY_PATH to contain the path to Or you can add this path (something like /usr/local/lib/php/<php-version-numbers> in /etc/ and run ldconfig afterwards.
