PHP 5.1.1 for eComStation beta 3 - now available

PHP5 OS/2 port - v5.1.1 - beta 3
This is a quick port of PHP v5.1.1 to OS/2. Currently only the cgi & cli versions of PHP are included. I do not yet have Apache modules.
This is built with Innotek GCC v3.3.5 and requires libc06.dll (available from ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0.6.0-ga2.zip).
This has not been extensively tested, but has been running on smedley.info with Apache2 2.2.0 (also built with libc06) for the last month or so. Whilst there is no apache module, running the cgi php.exe with a shared php5.dll does not result in any significant performance deterioration (IMHO).
Patches for thread support and detection of php.ini in c:mptnetc have been included in the executable largely based on Brian Havard's patched for PHP 4.3.1
I have included support for some external databases - dbase & pdo_mysql are loadable as shared modules. Now that I've nutted out how to do this, other databases will be added as time permits, with those that people request to be given priority.
As always, any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org is appreciated. It's really nice to hear of people using my ports!
