==================

The libc-client library was installed yesterday (by dnf download from Fedora)
because it is needed for imap support which is the reason I'm re-installing PHP.
I have PHP 7.2.9 running at the moment and there was no problem with that
installation but it doesn't have imap support installed.

I copied the link that you referenced and it is identical to the config.m4 file
in the PHP 7.3.0 distribution that I downloaded.  From your note I think that
you feel that this patch is not complete but I don't know how to check.  I am
willing to try any suggestions that you might have.

...and thanks very much for the prompt response.
