rebuilding PHP

Asked by RoyB on 2011-08-25

I need to rebuild php5 to include pctl. I have an application running that makes use of PHP now as it was delivered and configured and delivered in the Ubuntu 11 server installation.

I need to make sure that all of the compile options are set exactly the same as when it was originally built so that when I rebuild php I don't suddenly have programs fail because of some omitted option.

So in a nutshell, I need to buld php to the exact configuration as delivered with Ubuntu 11 with the addition of pctl.

How can I make sure that the build script will be a duplicate of what ubuntu used?

Rebuild the package from source, modifying debian/rules in order to change the build flags to include pcntl
