Exactly. It is overkill to link the helper programs and the support programs
for instance with complete Oracle libs under PHP3 situations but the only
correct way is to have more granular LIBS variables. Because this would
require too much hacking for Apache 1.3 we _have_ to accept this overkill.
So, just close the PR with such a statement, Marc. IMHO we have no other
choice for 1.3.
