I'm trying to install odbtp libraries via PECL installer, and I'm getting the following error :

There were other errors, but now it's down to :

"configure: error: Please reinstall the ODBTP distribution"

has anyone else had this problem? I'm getting it on all cpanel servers I'm trying to install on.

I seem to have fixed this :

zcat odbtp-1.1.4.tar.gz | tar xf -
cd odbtp-1.1.4
make install
Then go back into PECL and install the module.
