Hi Frank

  Unfortunately I can not open a ssh port at the moment. :-( After
making the copy of the shared object from the lib64 to the lib folder,
ldconfig throws a warning: 

  ldconfig: libraries libidn.so.11 and libidn.so in directory /usr/lib
have same soname but different type.

  Hmmm, this copy-solution seems to make trouble. 

  Now, I just tried to compile PHP and get a similar error message with
another library:

  checking for fabsf... yes
  checking for floorf... yes
  configure: error: libjpeg.(a|so) not found.

  The libjpeg.so is located in the /usr/lib64 folder :-(



P.S.: By the way, it's a Fedora 5, not Ubuntu system.

If you can provide temporary ssh access to such a system, I could look
into the problem.  I am not aware of any problems on my 64bit ubuntu
