PHP5 on gentoo

Building PHP5 on gentoo (dev-lang/php) can be a serious pain. Maybe I just didn't find a good solution, but what i found required me to set a lot of useflags:


dev-lang/php apache2 calendar cjk cli ctype curl curlwrappers \
 bcmath dba ftp gd iconv imap inifile memlimit mysql mysqli pcntl \
 pcre posix -recode soap session simplexml sockets spl sqlite \
 tokenizer xml xmlrpc xpm xsl zip zlib

Others have been set by default, so I don't know if the list is complete.
