PHP Extensions XML_RPC + mbstring != Compilation Happiness

If the title of this blog post doesn’t explain it enough here it is.

This evening, well early morning, I was trying to get XML_RPC to install as the native extension.  I had previously install PHP 5.1.6 with the mbstring extension enabled to make a pesky phpMyAdmin error about it go away.

Well this time it caught up with me.  I tries to compile PHP with the same previous settings, now adding XML_RPC.  Well thank heavens for the bug tracking system at PHP, I found out why I failed.

Here is the link to why it failed.

Hope this can help someone out there! Until next time, happy coding, and remember, always practice safe hex.
