php "enable-sigchild" configure option.
Here is what I did and ran into problems:

I am using Subversion through the Apache httpd "svn dav" modules on Slackware 13.37. For one of my repositories I wanted to setup a "pre-revprop-change" hook. After doing so, I got the following error messages in my apache log files: "Error waiting for process '/home/subversion/repositories/xyz/hooks/pre-revprop-change': No child processes".

After some searching I found this forum thread which describes exactly the same problem I had:

So I rebuilt php 5.3.13 without the "--enable-sigchild" option and it all worked as expected.

The above happened about two months ago.

And I also found this today:
Where it says that "--enable-sigchild is only relevent to users of Oracle who are having <defunc> processes".

Today with the update to php 5.3.14, I had to rebuild again.

SlackTeam - I was wondering if it would be possible to build php from now on without the "--enable-sigchild" configure option, please.

Thank you.

Good news. And yes, it is indeed disabled:

Would it be possible to do the same for the latest stable Slackware release - aka 13.37?
