It's only integrated if you build php with mysql support. And if it's an 
on-going requirement then all you should need to know is to give the 
--with-mysql switch to configure for the php distro. Which you probably 
already have done.

Sure. I've done that with no ill effects. The only caveat is if you 
build modules as DSOs. Then you should go ahead and do "make install" 
once your build is done.
