I did push a rebuild PHP into [staging]. I had to add a hack to keep the
non-ZTS build that can only be used with the prefork MPM. For some
reason PHP devs thought it would be a good idea to base a PHP compile
time option on the stat of an Apache runtime config. Some day we might
just drop mod_php; I cant think of any sane usage of this SAPI. Am I
correct that Apache can now use FastCGI without third-party modules?

Anyway, I suggest in the end we should post an announcement on the front
page. IMHO that install message is not really needed then, but that
might be debatable.
