But  that wuoln't use the same exact sources as the other package?
(which are "enough" but with have no command to build them both, i.e.
the "configure" is set only to generate mod_php, in mod_php)
In that case I'd have to bother mod_php mantainer and/or send him a
patch, anyway.

Yeah, I guess so.

Mhhh... yummi "seq" command =)
Anyway that was just an example, I actually feel "more at ease" in a
