    what i mean is that some the default php installation does not include some external packages (eg from PEAR) and when i look at the php manual, it talks about recompilling with those packages as an option. but my installation is rpm.

    hope you don't mind my hijacking,
    but what is it that 'pear' is supposed to do? i did not grasp it from the php documentation.
