So Wade P are you working at NGC? good company!!!

i sould follow steve's idea as this is what i do with version of php
that are rpm based. However, i would still use the same version of php.
I would download the rpm source and use that to build my version of php.
 You could even take it a step further and create your own rpm that you
could then use on other machines.
