Hi, I’m trying to get a workable memcache extension for php on Cygwin and I’m getting some resistance. I tried getting the extension from PECL with pecl install memcache, however this obviously fails whenever litbool tries to link to anything. (Zlib in this case)


My question is how should someone attempt this? I’ve started reading about statically compiling the extension into PHP, but I’m unsure how this would be achieved with cygport’s source.  Can something be done with the source coming from PECL at all?


Thank you.
