It is exactly the same and for the same reasons.

If you need something, look in DAG or EPEL or ATRPMS and if it is not 
there, I would build it if I were you.

The issues are that when there is a pear or php upgrade, it might 
replace your files or configuration ... also any RPMS that might need 
that require will probably not see it since it is not in the RPM database.
