How do I compile PHP 5.3.0 without the ereg module?

Hi,

When I run $ php -m after compiling PHP 5.3.0 I noticed some new modules had been installed by default, some of which can't be removed (SPL & Reflection). I also noticed the ereg module in the list, but I can't figure out how to remove it. I am especially confused because PHP 5.3.0 has deprecated the ereg functions.

$ php -m:
[PHP Modules]
Core
date
ereg
pcre
Reflection
SPL
standard
zlib

$ php -r 'phpinfo();' | grep ereg:
Configure Command =>  './configure'  '--with-zlib' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr' '--disable-cgi' '--disable-path-info-check' '--without-iconv' '--disable-json' '--disable-mbregex' '--disable-mbregex-backtrack' '--disable-pdo' '--disable-posix' '--disable-simplexml' '--without-sqlite' '--disable-tokenizer' '--disable-xmlreader' '--disable-xmlwriter' '--without-pear' '--disable-libxml' '--disable-dom' '--disable-filter' '--disable-session' '--disable-xml' '--disable-hash' '--disable-ctype' '--disable-fileinfo' '--disable-phar' '--without-sqlite3' '--disable-posix' '--without-posix' '--disable-regex' '--without-regex' '--disable-ereg' '--without-ereg'

As you can see I tried a few different ways to remove ereg from being compiled, but they all failed.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Try --with-regex=no but it seems that it can't be really disabled in 5.3.0
It is marked as depricated, but can't be remove at all. Additional try --disable-all and if it is still in then it can't be removed at all.
