This will be an unofficial build (upstream it's still 5.1.6), so I want 
to open up the suggestion box a bit further ...
Anyone here tried to build it already with suhosin? Built several php 
versions up to 5.2.x (not exactly sure which versions I could not get 
built), found some instructions and spec files online, but when I start 
patching it with suhosin it blows up in my face.(I have merely basic rpm 
building skills) Will provide some more info tomorrow when I am at work 
if anyone is interested?
For people that do not know suhosin: 
http://www.hardened-php.net/suhosin/ , for the full security you should 
have the extension AND the patch (the extension is findable for 5.1.6 in 
rpm format but not the patched version, which is already default in 
freebsd, gentoo and debian as far as I know ... )
