OS: Centos

I've downloaded php 5.3.6 source, configured it with these options:

./configure --disable-cgi --enable-fpm --with-mcrypt --with-zlib --enable-mbstring --with-curl --disable-debug --disable-rpath --enable-inline-optimization --with-bz2 --with-zlib --enable-sockets --enable-sysvsem --enable-sysvshm --enable-pcntl --enable-mbregex --with-mhash --enable-zip --with-pcre-regex --enable-soap --with-mysqli=mysqlnd --with-pdo-mysql --with-pdo-sqlite --enable-sockets 

then did



make install

Everything installed ok, besides ANY libraries, like,, NOTHING. I've searched for them on entire system but they're nowhere to be found.

Am I doing something wrong? It's driving me insane.

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: Nevermind,

yum install

saved the day as usual =/ Had to install eveything this way

Try doing 'yum install' to install the entire package with everything in the correct places.
