PHP 5 with informix on fedora 8

n:  I'm trying to compile php-5.2.9 with clientsdk.2.81.UC2.LINUX on Fedora 8, when runs the configure, make and make install commands, the PHP don't display any error, but when I try to connect to DB, PHP display an error message like "undefined function"

I have configured PHP 4.4.9 with clientsdk.2.81.UC2.LINUX on other fedora 8 and works fine, but with PHP 5 I can't run any connection...

any idea?
