Review, and learn to write your own, PHP RPM's. That brings them into
the already existing dependency and update management available. You
can set "yum" to look in your local Yum repository as well for

Make sure to publish your own package updates to EPEL or RPMforge for
packages that are not part of the core, upstream RHEL distribution. I
love CentOS extas, but the updates for tools like "mock" are too out
of date to be usable for me, so I rely on EPEL and RPMforge.
