As requested, the diffs are avaiable for download. Apply with "patch -p 1".
- I didn't get the domxml stuff working, so this extension is not really
built. I'll fix that soon.
- the "php4" binary from php4-cgi is in fact the CLI binary, which doesn't
output Content-type headers and friends
- the "php4.cgi" binary is the one for CGI usage.
- Both share the same config file, /etc/php4/cgi/php.ini
- I throughly tested the mysql and gd extensions, as most of the application
I need 4.3.x for rely on these
- all tests from "make test" passed
