I want to compile php 5.4.8 on my mac 10.8.2, but get some errors which cant solve by my self, so need your help.

Firstly i get default php options with php -i | head, after it do this command

./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --disable-dependency-tracking --sysconfdir=/private/etc --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs --enable-cli --with-config-file-path=/etc --with-libxml-dir=/usr --with-openssl=/usr --with-kerberos=/usr --with-zlib=/usr --enable-bcmath --with-bz2=/usr --enable-calendar --disable-cgi --with-curl=/usr --enable-dba --enable-ndbm=/usr --enable-exif --enable-fpm --enable-ftp --with-gd --with-freetype-dir=/BinaryCache/apache_mod_php/apache_mod_php-79~4/Root/usr/local --with-jpeg-dir=/BinaryCache/apache_mod_php/apache_mod_php-79~4/Root/usr/local --with-png-dir=/BinaryCache/apache_mod_php/apache_mod_php-79~4/Root/usr/local --enable-gd-native-ttf --with-icu-dir=/usr --with-iodbc=/usr --with-ldap=/usr --with-ldap-sasl=/usr --with-libedit=/usr --enable-mbstring --enable-mbregex --with-mysql=mysqlnd --with-mysqli=mysqlnd --without-pear --with-pdo-mysql=mysqlnd --with-mysql-sock=/var/mysql/mysql.sock --with-readline=/usr --enable-shmop --with-snmp=/usr --enable-soap --enable-sockets --enable-sqlite-utf8 --enable-suhosin --enable-sysvmsg --enable-sysvsem --enable-sysvshm --with-tidy --enable-wddx --with-xmlrpc --with-iconv-dir=/usr --with-xsl=/usr --enable-zend-multibyte --enable-zip --with-pcre-regex --with-pgsql=/usr --with-pdo-pgsql=/usr

But get this error

config.status: creating Makefile config.status: creating jconfig.h
config.status: jconfig.h is unchanged config.status: executing
depfiles commands config.status: executing libtool commands configure:

Maybe someone have some suggestions on this?

Is there even such commands : --enable-cli and so on? I don't thinkso. Where did you get all the commands from? – superuser Nov 17 '12 at 11:48
