That's why you write build scripts. Especially for a minor version
update, my upgrade procedure is:
[edit some line that looks like "export PHP_VERSION=X-Y-Y" to read
Well, actually, my setup is a little more complicated (it compiles a
bunch of things, openssl, zlib, mhash, etc, then builds apache and
php, linking against the various libraries)
If anyone's interested, I can try to document them and up them up on
the web somehwere.
Binary packages are great, until they're not. In my experience, it's
worth spending a few days putting together some scripts to compile
what you need. That way, you know what you're getting.
