FOR SOLVING PHP ./configure RESULTING IN __rcp_thread_destroy@GLIBC_2_2_3_... AND 
UNRESOLVED REFERENCES WITH ORACLE OCI8

KEYWORDS: PHP OCI OCI8 NET8 ./configure __rpc_thred_destroy UNRESOLVED REFERENCES

For building php-4.4.1 or later with oci8, make sure your LD_LIBARRY_PATH has at a minimum the following directories in its path for Oracle8i 8.1.5 or later, Oracle9i 9.0.2 or later, and Oracle9i Release 2: 9.2.0.4 or later, do the following:

Note: We are not using the Oracle Instant Client here. This assumes you have an actual Oracle Installation.

1. Set ORACLE_HOME

Example using Oracle 9i Relase 2 -- 9.2.0.5:

ORACLE_HOME=/opt/app/oracle/product/9iR2

2. Set LD_LIBRARY_PATH with:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib: \
$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/lib:\ 
$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

3. On Unix / Linux, don't forget to export these environment variables:

export ORACLE_HOME LD_LIBRARY_PATH

4. Now, build PHP with the following:

./configure --with-apxs2=<path to Apache 2.0/bin/apxs> --with-oci8=$ORACLE_HOME --enable-sigchild

It should now build correctly. The key with Oracle is to ensure that you pick up the libclntX.so (client librariess) where X is the Oracle version associated with the version your using for instance, in the above example, libclnt9.so

Also note that if your using Oracle 9iAS Release 2 v9.0.2, Oracle 10g iAS Release 1 v9.0.4.1, the above steps will work because ORACLE_HOME will containe all of the libraries necessary. Simply point ORACLE_HOME to the top level directory of these installations and set LD_LIBRARY_PATH as described above.
