Config PHP in HTTPD to read only "<?" without "php"

Is there a way to configure the PHP section in HTTPD.CONF file to process PHP files with only "<?" ... without the "php" ?

Currently using:  <?  some stuff;  ?>
- - server is not reading php files
When I use:  <?php  some stuff;  ?>
- - server reads php files just fine

Instead of updating a TON of php files, is there a way to edit the HTTPD file to make the server process the PHP files correctly without the additional "php"?

FYI:  This is on a Windows Server - PHP5.
Apache Web Server
