I saw ;
rpm -qp --provides php-common-5.2.6-2.el5s2.x86_64.rpm
php(api) = 20041225
php(zend-abi) = 20060613
php-api = 20041225

php(api) is not meanfull since it haven't chance for years (2004)
Only php(zend-api) is useful

php 5.1.x => 20050922
php 5.2.x => 20060613
php 5.3.x => 20090115

Check "phpize -v" :
Configuring for:
PHP Api Version:         20041225
Zend Module Api No:      20060613
Zend Extension Api No:   220060519

Exactly what I write above. "PHP Api Version" as no sense as the php
extension loader check the "Zend Module Api No"

Should use (simpler) %php_core_api and %php_zend_api from
/etc/rpm/macros.php.

Generally Fedora package use something like :

%global php_apiver  %((echo 0; php -i 2>/dev/null | sed -n 's/^PHP API
=> //p') | tail -1)

%if %{?php_zend_api}0
# For php 5.2.x use macros from /etc/rpm/macros.php
Requires:     php(zend-abi) = %{php_zend_api}
Requires:     php(api) = %{php_core_api}
%else
# Poor check for older PHP
Requires:     php-api = %{php_apiver}
%endif
