Looking good so far ... I'm still screwed because of other extensions
which are not available. Imagick in particular as gd2 will not handle
the images I've already got archived, so we need to fix that before
PHP5.3 can be distributed.

ibtest.php is showing up clear, ADOdb test suite is giving me
'deprecated' warnings against split() so I need to look into that!
... OK bitweaver gives me hundreds of deprecated messages including
split() so both ADOdb and Smarty need a lot of work to be usable with
PHP5.3! That is what I was expecting .... but we still need to keep PHP4
compliance as well :(

The other big problem of cause is the default setings for 5.3 have a lot
of dross such as mysqlnd which ideally we need to switch off. It takes a
lot of space up on phpinfo for something we don't use.

My own progress is documented here. I think I probably need to include
the steps quoted in the article but I'm stuck now trying to work out how
to fix the path variable so that buildconf actually runs. This is a new
machine nothing else installed - not even Firebird yet but a 64 bit
version of that for windows is probably on the cards.
