acinclude.m4 references incorrect PDO header location

Bug #1393640 reported by Brad Erickson

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
php5 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The /usr/lib/php5/build/acinclude.m4 file looks for PDO header files in $prefix/include/php/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h, but they are actually in $prefix/include/php5/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h on Ubuntu. This bug stops PHP PDO extensions from compiling.

Current PHP source:

dnl PHP_CHECK_PDO_INCLUDES([found [, not-found]])
  AC_CACHE_CHECK([for PDO includes], pdo_cv_inc_path, [
    AC_MSG_CHECKING([for PDO includes])
    if test -f $abs_srcdir/include/php/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h; then
    elif test -f $abs_srcdir/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h; then
    elif test -f $prefix/include/php/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h; then

Additional references to this issue: - php5-dev: acinclude.m4's PHP_CHECK_PDO_INCLUDES fails to look in the right place for php_pdo_driver.h - ./configure fails with "Cannot find php_pdo_driver.h" - php5: Compiling pdo_oci extension fails with "Cannot find php_pdo_driver.h."

Description: Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS
Release: 14.04

A temporary workaround:
sudo ln -s /usr/include/php5/ /usr/include/php

This patch changes the php_pdo_driver location test from php/ to php5/:

- elif test -f $prefix/include/php/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h; then
- pdo_cv_inc_path=$prefix/include/php/ext
+ elif test -f $prefix/include/php5/ext/pdo/php_pdo_driver.h; then
+ pdo_cv_inc_path=$prefix/include/php5/ext

Seems like the correct solution to me, but I could be completely wrong. Thanks
