I was studying the php package to build an php fully compatible with apache
I understand that php is the base package and the others are split packages

So, would you know if it is necessary to rebuilt all the php packages or
only the php-apache?
Thanks in advance.

A question, i saw some references [1] that the apache MPM can be
"dinamically" changed. Is it true in Arch?
