you tell me. I cannot think a way to have sanely generated extension= from
installed php4-* package. The php.ini adding should be handled by the
appropriate version (php4, php4-cgi) so it would be added to every possible
SAPI version or php4, which may exist in the future.

Maybe php4-gd.config - register as php4 extension
php4, php4-cgi.config - check for what extensions are installed ( though this
probably should go to postinst or can I somehow guarantee then all the
extension .config files will be processed before I need them?) and ask for
every of them if you want to activate it.
