Segfault on fopen()? That's the first time I hear of that one. I could
imagine the possibility of a crash if you try to use your built with php's regex/*.o with a php4 cgi that was
built with the system regex, but you say that you have the exact same
problem with shp2img so that can explain the shp2img crash.

Have you tried running Valgrind on shp2img? That might help to identify
the source of the problem. For sure you should try to solve the issue
with shp2img first as it is much simpler than the php module to debug.
I'm not sure what to suggest, there may be something wrong in your build
environment, like duplicate (but different) copies of the same header
files for some libs for instance.
