Sure I've done this many times when I didn't want to go to the trouble of
making a package. One option is to install it in /opt/php-xx.yy.zz
(version) and link the binary there to /usr/local/bin/php. This makes
later version updates easy. Some components are not compiled in by
default and need flags to configure.
