[ACCEPTED]-$PHP_AUTOCONF errors on mac os x 10.7.3 when trying to install pecl extensions-pecl
brew install autoconf
Much easier solution
You need to install autoconfig. I usually 3 like to install libraries from source. So 2 you can do the following:
curl -OL http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/autoconf/autoconf-latest.tar.gz tar xzf autoconf-latest.tar.gz cd autoconf-* ./configure --prefix=/usr/local make sudo make install
I just went through 1 this with Mountain Lion.
On Mac OS X 10.8 situation is slightly different. Highly 6 voted solution from Bob Spryn doesn't work, because 5 it doesn't create symlinks, so after installing 4
autoconf you should make them:
sudo ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/autoconf/2.69/bin/autoconf /usr/bin/autoconf sudo ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/autoconf/2.69/bin/autoheader /usr/bin/autoheader
I know that this question 3 was for 10.7, but I hope my answer is useful 2 for someone on 10.8. :)
Updated: Also works 1 on 10.10 Yosemite.
sudo port install autoconf
if you use macports
XCODE 4.3 doesn't put all the autoconf etc. tools 5 in the Developer folder. It doesn't even 4 create that folder in MACINTOSH HD. I had 3 to downgrade to XCODE 4.2.1 which installs 2 everything you need in the Developer folder 1 and now I see no errors.
Also here is a useful reference.
maybe you need link autoconf with
brew link autoconf.
