Thank you, that was *exactly* what I needed. Consider yourself offered a drink. <g>

I wish I did. I had to edit the spec file again, to add to the line where it called configure, to add --with-php-config=/usr/local/bin/php-config

Now all I have to do is figure out what's wrong with the actual compile. I suspect I may need an older version of the bridge, to go with our version of java, since we're getting errors about "illegal argument, and "couldn't find constructor".

No problems whatever. Thanks again!
