No, I didn't untick anything. I saw the 'undefined symbol' in my Apache
log, and decided to recompile Then the error went away. I had
this happen, 2 years or so ago, with mysql extension for PHP4, too: the
second time compiling it the (other types of errors) disappeared. That's
actually not all that strange, really, because it's entirely plausible
that sometimes, compiling an extension the first time, it is dependent on
something that wasn't built yet the first around.
