PHP is typically dynamically built as well now. If you install redhat
you have to explictly say php-pgsql to get postgresql support.
This is the same on all the major Linux distriubtions I know of
including one offs like Ubuntu.
As Marc pointed out it is also the same on FreeBSD.
Maybe I am just dense, but the argument seems to be completely moot. PHP
is no different than Perl or Python in this case. Heck even if PHP is built
statically (where the PostgreSQL driver is linked in versus an .so) it
still has nothing to do with plPHP.
