Don't use "patch -p0 ../../blah.patch", use 'patch -p0
"$srcdir/blah.patch", or "patch -p0 ../blah.patch". The point I'm
trying to make, is that you should never try to break out of

If this package relies on a non-standard php.ini, bundle in a basic
php.ini with the changes necessary, and use php's -c flag to use it
instead of the system php.ini (dunno if this is possible with composer
or php-box -- never used them).

You should also enclose all instances of $srcdir and $pkgdir in
double-quotes, in case they have a space in their path.
