php.spec patch adding php-cli
simple patch to php.spec from RHEL PHP version 4.3.2-19.ent to also create CLI
This also applies to RHEL4. Please make a php-cli package, so we can run all
those php scripts out there.

patch off of 4.3.10-3.2 to add php cli binary
This patch installs the CLI binary as /usr/bin/php and the CGI binary as
METOO. Minimally, having a man page would be just *super* :)
looks like FC4 now includes the CLI php binary so I presume it will show up in

This feature is added for the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat
does not currently plan to provide a resolution for this in a Red Hat Enterprise
Linux update for currently deployed systems.
With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in response
to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative approach when
evaluating changes for inclusion in maintenance updates for currently deployed
products. The primary objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware
platform support and to resolve critical defects.
