HELP : IMAP and PHP Compile

I am totally stuck. I cannot seem to compile imap with php-4.4.7 OR php-5.2.4. I googled a lot, found many links but nothing seems to solve my problem. I am on SuSE 10.1. I used both the c-client libraries, imap-2006k.tar.Z & imap-2004g.tar.Z. Followed the instructions from

When I try to configure with Imap,.
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/php --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --enable-xml --with-imap=/usr/local/imap2004/

I get the following error,

checking whether IMAP works... no
configure: error: build test failed. Please check the config.log for details.

When I look into the config.log,

configure:44781: checking for U8T_CANONICAL
configure:44797: gcc -c -I/usr/local/imap2004//include conftest.c 1>&5
configure: In function 'main':
configure:44792: error: 'U8T_CANONICAL' undeclared (first use in this function)
configure:44792: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
configure:44792: error: for each function it appears in.)

Finally resolved this.

For compiling this extension without compiling imap from sources I did (on SuSE 10.1)

Install the following rpms:


# mkdir /usr/include/imap/lib
# cp /usr/lib/libc-client-PHP4.a /usr/include/imap/lib/libc-client.a

Now configure line:
./configure --with-imap=/usr/include/imap

Rock & Roll baby !!!
