The recommended fix for this was to run the CLI version of PHP,
instead of the cgi version that is also built.

I'm seeing the same thing on a RHEL 4 system, we do build our own PHP
and I enabled CLI, looked like it built it, but the setup.php still
just hangs?  I sure can see this as a very common problem and it stops
you cold in the install process without so much as an error message.
I was very lucky to find this thread on Google.

I didn't see anything on the Horde site on this, do you have any
definite workaround?  Our PHP was built with the stuff below and it
did create a 'php' executable in sapi/cli -- that still did not work?

Many thanks!
