Description Jason 2002-05-07 13:20:03 UTC
www/mod_php4 && lang/php4 version 4.2.0 have a bug with mkdir().

See: http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=16905

Fix: This bug has been fixed in the upcomming php 4.2.1.  But the patch below will fix in 4.2.0.  I added it to the files directory and tested with both the apache module and standalone release.
How-To-Repeat:        mkdir("lsd|dfdf");  // Will produce segmentation fault

This is the reason of my php-dev port idea (ports/37612): get fixes
before a new official release.

No, you need to look at it the other way round :)

Its a good idea because it means bugs such as these have less chance of
making it into the release.

The one disadvantage of the Ports system is that if everyones using it to
maintain an immaculate system, people are going to be less eager to
perform testing.  Therefore FreeBSD testing exposure may be lower and
FreeBSD specific bugs have more chance of appearing in release versions.

For this to be a success you would have to be picking snapshots that are
"good enough" for production use.  I think most people assume that
anything in the ports tree is stable(ish).
