PHP 4.3.1 "make" failing with "collect2: ld returned 1 exit status" "make: *** [sapi/cli/php] Error 1"

I am attempting to install PHP 4.3.1 on a RedHat Linux 9.0 server. I'm running Apache 2.0.48. I am attempting to execute the installation using the following syntax:

./configure --with-mysql --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-zlib

The configure process works fine no errors. The tail end of the "make" process results in the following:

ext/mysql/libmysql/my_tempnam.lo(.text+0x4c): In function `my_tempnam':
/usr/local/src/php/php-4.3.1/ext/mysql/libmysql/my_tempnam.c:103: the use of `tempnam' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [sapi/cli/php] Error 1

I also tried running the "configure" without the "--with-zlib" option but it didn't make a difference.

Can you help?

Thanks!

very weird. Do other programs compile correctly?
Completely wiping out the php directory and unpacking original sources again might help..

You may want to put this question to the Linux Gurus as well, because the problem may be something more inherent to Linux than PHP

Thanks! Yes, all other apps (rrdtool, apache, etc.) compiled with no problem at all. I'll try starting from scratch again to see if it makes a difference.

Thanks again.

I proceeded to install 4.3.3 (still not sure why I was installing 4.3.1..:) ) and the process was seamless, no problems whatsoever. Still not sure why 4.3.1 was failing but, oh well... Thanks for your assistance.

Good. Did you try again with 4.3.1? same results?
that's weird.. anyway new releases happen because bugs are found in previous releases, so if everything is working fine now you can forget about it (and close the question)

No, I didn't try again with 4.3.1 due to time constraints. I had to get this going as quickly as possible, along with a million other things. How do I go about closing the question properly, given that there are 3 comments with "accept" possibilities?

Thanks!

If you think one of the comments was an answer to your question, you should accept the comment with an A Grade.*

If you think one of the comments led you to investigate installing php 4.3.3, then accept it with a B-Grade.*

If you think you answered your own question(which would seem to be the case) you can ask the CS Section to close the question for you and refund the points.
