can't install Php 4.3.9 - I guess?

Fedora Core 2
Trying to upgrade from php 4.3.8 to 4.3.9

Is it me, or are the instructions terrible ... example-

"The initial PHP setup and configuration process is controlled by the use of the commandline options of the configure  script."

So am i supposed to know I must run ./configure as root from this statement?

So I put the tar ball in a home directory somewhere. Untarred it, did "./configure", did "make" - everything is fine - except I don't think the new php is installed. Have I missed a command? like ./install.

Maybe I started in the wrong directory.

./configure will not be sufficient to get the same result as the current installed php-version.

It would be better to install the source-rpm of php 4.3.8 and the modify the SPEC-file to build a 4.3.9 version and then run an rpm-build of php. So you get the same modules, .. as your current version.

after the make you need a
make install
to install the php for the system.
