Saxon-HE/C 64-bit Linux setup binary didn't install PHP5-Build folder
Using the 64-bit Linux binary from this page - http://www.saxonica.com/download/c.xml - I was trying to build Saxon-HE/C v1.1.0 as an extension for PHP 5.6.38.
This page - http://www.saxonica.com/saxon-c/doc/html/index.html - says:
For PHP5 please copy files in the PHP5-Build directory into the Saxon.C.API directory.
But, on my computer, the installer didn't create that folder. I searched the web to try to find some solutions, and found 1 web page which mentioned the same problem:
Installing Saxon/C on PHP 5
According to the official documentation, "for PHP5 please copy files in the PHP5-Build directory into the Saxon.C.API directory." However, there is no PHP5-Build directory provided. Please contact Saxonica's support for assistance with building for PHP 5.
Earlier this year, using the 32-bit installer, I was successfully able to build Saxon-HE/C v1.1.0 as an extension for PHP 5.6.13 in a 32-bit Puppy Linux system (running in VirtualBox), since the PHP5-Build folder was present.
So, perhaps the 64-bit installer has a glitch which stops it from creating that folder, and perhaps other files, such as the Readme, which also was surprisingly missing when I ran the installer in my non-VirtualBoxed 64-bit Puppy Linux system.
I've attached my entire install.log file.
Thanks for any help! Also, thank you so much for creating Saxon/C, and for all the other wonderful work you do!

Thanks for reporting this. Looking at the Saxon-HE/C version we also seem to be missing the built php library for PHP5 and there is a bug in the config.m4 for PHP5 as it references php7_saxon.cpp, instead it should be referencing php5_saxon.cpp. I have now fixed in the svn repository.
In the downloads for Saxon-EE/C and Saxon-PE/C we have both the files for PHP5 and the built library for PHP5 and PHP7.
I will look to make sure all the documented files are in the download.
As a workaround you can download the PHP5 files here:
PHP5-Build: download config.m4
Under svn in the Saxon-C-API directory download the files: php5_saxon.h php5_saxon.cpp

The workaround worked perfectly! Thank you so much!
