I found out the directions for building PHP on windows that come with the source code are out of date.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 best Windows know-how (not-microsoft-employee) guy shot at documenting the process, but the feedback he got from Microsoft employees was this is crap. its all wrong."
