I have both Apache and PHP set up manually, albeit the latter without CURL.
There is this jungle of instructions and explanations on extensions for PHP.
I have a very straightforward question - what do I need to do to enable CURL in a more dynamic way. I resent the idea of static linking, in fact I hate and avoid static linking like the plague. Is it possible to have my Apache and PHP understand that there is CURL in town? I can compile CURL if necessary.
I would like to know how to accomplish this without package management, i.e. building it all myself.
