I am following some instructions that have me building php 4.3.7
outside of pkgsrc and I am running into install problems.  It is a
problem with the library:

iranlib /usr/local/apache2/modules/libphp4.a
chmod 644 /usr/local/apache2/modules/libphp4.a
libtool: install: warning: remember to run `libtool --finish /export/home/sam/src/php-4.3.7/libs'
Warning!  dlname not found in /usr/local/apache2/modules/
Assuming installing a .so rather than a libtool archive.
chmod 755 /usr/local/apache2/modules/
chmod: /usr/local/apache2/modules/ No such file or
apxs:Error: Command failed with rc=65536

I have been around UNIX long enough to know that .so's are
libraries, but if I am not mistaken different flavors of UNIX have
different extenstions for libraries.  I have these files in
usr/local/apache2/modules :

httpd.exp       libphp4.a

Here are the options I used to compile php:

CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/imap-2004 -I/usr/pkg/include"
LDFLAGS="-L/usr/pkg/lib -R/usr/pkg/lib"

export CC
export CFLAGS
export LDFLAGS
