Compiling PHP on FC4

Dumb question, but frustrating.

I need to compile php with the mysql option and there is lots of advice for this here
(http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Linux/Administration/Q_21349808.html)

I can't find the 'configure' script refered.  Is that part of the default PHP default or not?

Running Fedora Core 4.

Thanks
SF

Yes configure is in the source-archive of php in the directory php-x.y.z where you unpacked the php-source archive.

The FC4 install did the PHP install - I presume it doesn't include the source then.
How can I resolve this so that I can re-compile PHP?

You don't need to compile it, usually - installing php-mysql rpm would do the trick.
