Topic: php_extdir macro not set

I'm trying to create php-pecl-couchbase for use with rh-php56 SCL.  I started from … base2.spec and made a few changes to fix the igbinary dependencies:

I'm running into an issue where %php_extdir isn't being set:

+ echo '%{php_extdir}'
+ grep couchbase
+ /opt/rh/rh-php56/root/usr/bin/php -n -d -d -d -d 'extension=/root/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/more-php56-php-pecl-couchbase2-2.3.0-1.el6.x86_64%{php_extdir}/' -m

error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.xAbiCo (%check)

I see php_extdir in the rh-php56 macros:

[root@e5b825d61774 SPECS]# grep php_extdir /opt/rh/rh-php56/register.content/etc/rpm/macros.rh-php56-php
%php56_php_extdir   /opt/rh/rh-php56/root/usr/lib64/php/modules

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Re: php_extdir macro not set

I'm building with

rpmbuild -ba php-pecl-couchbase2.spec --define 'scl rh-php56'

Re: php_extdir macro not set

I was missing the rh-php56-build package, works now

Re: php_extdir macro not set

FYI, only the 1st change (sub_prefix) is useful.

And, the more-php56 repostiory I was used to maintain in Copr is now deprecated, and packages for rh-php56 and rh-php70 are now maintained inside the CentOS SCLo SIG.

See … -for-RHSCL

BTW, couchbase is not there for now, but is also not in Fedora, so I don't plan to add it until it have been reviewed for Fedora.
