Hello, and thank you very much for your reply.

Yes. After looking closely at the variable, I discovered that also.
So I used the PREFIX=/usr/local/php5. But as I build it (via php5-extensions)
I am not seeing the PREFIX variable reflected. Shouldn't I be using:
make -DPREFIX=/usr/local/php5? Or simply hack the Makefile?

Thanks again for taking the time to respond.
