I use XAMPP on MacOS X with PHP Eclipse to develop my forum software (see my signature), and I've come across a nasty issue whilst using MySQLi OO - I can't use CREATE TABLE with them for some reason, so basically I need to I need to build a debug version of XAMPP for MacOS X as dbg.so is sorely missing from the XAMPP 0.5 distribution.
I downloaded the source to XAMPP 0.5 and unpacked it, but I can't see where to start the build, and there's a lack of instructions on doing so.
So I downloaded PHP 5.1.1, and used the same configure as found in phpinfo() and modified things until I got what I wanted (debug), and it got all the way to the end but couldn't link due to pcre libraries already being exported elsewhere. I am so close, so I think I'm on the right track.
I have XCode 2.2 and can build universal binaries. Would the XAMPP project like a seasoned coder to build the latest betas on MacOS X? I can do installers, and build disk images pretty easily.
