    I am use to install packages from a repository for example deb or rpm. But sometimes you like to have the latest version of a package. For example PHP. I understand that PHP has a lot of extra options what you can enable with ./configure but how do you know which options must be added or is there a default if you don't add options with ./configure.

    Anyways it would be helpful if there was a tutorial about compile from source.
    Can anybody explain to me this compile issue?

    Thanks
