Just curious, which of these toolchains are you using exactly?

I just tested this here in ARM Qemu, with the same configuration as you
for PHP, and it works just fine:


# php-cgi -T -f test.php 
X-Powered-By: PHP/5.5.22
Content-type: text/html

Hello from Nios II
Elapsed time: 0.021249 sec


Can you provide your complete Buildroot .config, so that we can try to
reproduce more precisely what's going on?

However, I don't have NIOS II hardware myself, so I won't be able to
reproduce on this specific architecture.
