Maybe this is not a FreeBSD source?

I'd suggest using the FreeBSD ports system for installation from
source (i. e. tar archives). PHP 5.2.12 seems to be availabe.
You can use

	# cd /usr/ports/lang/php5
	# make
	# make install

Make sure - not "make sure" :-) - that your ports tree is up to
date in order to recieve the latest version.

Check the available options that can be set for the php5 port
at compile time, either via "make config", or enter them
manually (e. g. in Makefile.local - I'm not sure if this
mechanism is still supported).

Yes, correct.

It is - by 5.2.11 (or by directadmin). Seems that you've not
installed 5.2.12 with your custom options yet.

As I said, I would suggest to try to achieve this through
the ports system. It's easier than fighting ./configure. :-)
