php-mongodb extension does not work anymore since the recent update of libmongoc from 1.3.5-1 to 1.4.0-1. The extension looks for the file “” provided by libmongoc, which does not exist anymore in 1.4.0-1.

Additional info:
* package version: php-mongodb 1.1.8-1
* config: no changes on original php-mongodb config; only set “memory_limit = 2G” and “date.timezone = Europe/Paris” in /etc/php/php.ini
* PHP output: “PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php/modules/' - cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0”

Steps to reproduce:
* all packages up to date
* Run “php -v” or any PHP script (composer for instance) will result with the previous output
* downgrading libmongoc to 1.3.5-1 allow the extension to work again

This task depends upon
