[development] PHP5 going forward

Perhaps this tells us something about our ongoing discussion about whether
to allow foreign code in our CVS. Clearly PHP has allowed it and has a
version which is necessary for successful use. TinyMCE is likely to have
similar properties if we have a slightly customized version in the Drupal
CVS, namely someone who installs for the public repository is likely to have
problems.  This is an opportunity to do better and have a private copy and
do enough version checking to insure that it is the one being used and
complain with an obvious error message instead of an obscure failure

Thanks to private conversation with Khalid and Wim I was able to determine
the issue.  PHP comes with its own version of PCRE and I had overridden the
use of that version with --with-pcre-regex=/usr/local.  
After removing that configuration item the issue has been resolved.
