Well, I've now rebuilt the RHEL SRPM with mssql support. It's now built
in the openSUSE Build Service at:


Not ideal in that it's the while php53 SRPM, and additionally because
OBS is currently building with CentOS 5.5 instead of 5.6. The latter
issue has brought me to raise a bug in the OBS Bugzilla:

Update CentOS build to 5.6

Installed my built PHP 5.3 RPMs on the machine I wanted them on -
painful! Why do you need to remove the PHP 5.1 RPMs before you can
install the 'php53' ones, surely the php53 RPMs could have had
"Deprecated" lines!?
