I'm running Debian, so there is a php4-mysql package that I have installed.
I'm not sure how the package maintainers build it.  I'm still debating
rebuilding PHP on my own, or just waiting until a new version makes its way
into the apt-get repository.  I have it working on another machine, so I can
at least test my script.  ;-)
