BTW: check your PM....
Yep, you have to configure php with directives thats not enabled by default, for example in PHP4 MySQL was built staticlly by default, meaning that doing a "configure" (or on non-Windows: ./configure) would result in MySQL was enabled and set staticlly by default.
Enabled by default in the php work means, that doing a "configure" will result in it being enabled and compiled when running "make" (or nmake on Windows).
As for the last one, there shouldn't be any difference, since they both point to a directory. but there might be some weird issue since Unix would handle it "poorly". But I can't tell for sure, I only do PHP compilations on Windows ;)
