j-pimp writes "It all started with a simple bug encountered while trying to get PHP and WCF to play nice. Before you know it I was attempting to compile PHP on windows myself. I found out the directions for building PHP on windows that come with the source code are out of date. I filed a bug report and was told: You have to ask the Microsoft guys to update that file.
[php wiki article] was one of our

is crap. its all wrong."
