Now granted a beginner may not need some of those features, but they're going to be confused as hell when they try to use something like sessions and it's not there. I repeat, turning off session support? And hashes, which I'm assuming has to do with md5 and sha1 support... why turn these off? Reflection maybe, though once you become familiar with it, it's damn near indispensible. SimpleXML maybe... even PDO maybe... but SESSIONS? heh. Why?!
"hash" means the hash extension (php-src/ext/hash). Functions like sha1(), md5() is apart of the core (documented on php.net).
And for the example, I would rather just do a "configure" that enables all default extensions and there from use additional arguments like "configure --with-mysql --with-mysqli"
