installing PHP extensions

Here I am again with the naive newbie questions:)

When I come across a PHP extension that I would like to use do I always 
have to reconfigure PHP?

I want to use some PHP XSLT functions on either my Red Hat Linux or 
MacOSX box:

and the install instructions say to run configure with such and such 

If I do this, do I have to include all the other options for other 
extensions and settings? Will all the configure options be reset if I 
only run configure with the options of installing the XSLT extension?

I guess I just want to know what is the easiest way to install an 
extension without messing up the PHP installation I have already.

Thanks a lot!
