I've had a look at the generated wrapper script and it looks as if there
is special code to detect whether a class member is an object or not and
to behave accordingly - something to do with PHP being weakly-typed. It
could be that before this was fixed, it was the cause of the problems
you were experiencing....

Just checked on RedHat 7.3, the php-devel package contains everything
needed to compile PHP mapscript. So I guess anything newer than this
should be OK :)
