Trying to compile the sqlanywhere php extension on ubuntu12:

./configure --with-php-config=/opt/php5/bin/php-config
make install

But configure fails:

: not found: 2519: ./configure: 
: not found: 2520: ./configure: 
./configure: 11467: ./configure: Syntax error: end of file unexpected (expecting "then")

The failing lines in ./configure all had DOS newline characters (displayed as ^M in vim).

The configure script is generated by phpize.

Actually --with-php-config asks for php-config -- a tool for getting info about PHP configuration and compile options -- not for 'php' binary.

Good point, question corrected.

Stripping all the DOS newline characters from ./configure solved the problem.

Suspect the problem due to some change between ubuntu11 & ubuntu12.
