Hi, I'm having some problems with PHP5, and Shared Libraries.

Some functions do not work with shared extensions.
Like: getimagesize();

"The image is a compressed SWF file, but you do not have a static
version of the zlib extension enabled."

I sent this bug to

And I got: "Agree, compiling *all* extensions as shared is stupid, please address to
the FreeBSD port maintainer."

I have tried to patch PHP5 port to compile a static library, but without success.

What can I do about this?

I have 3 servers running with PHP5, and all 3 I get this same error.
