Try out some of the pre-packaged php 5.3 RPMs:

If you need to recompile with some specific options, his SRPMs are a good starting point.

You need to download a SRPM, such as this: rpms.famillecollet.com/SRPMS/php-5.3.6-3.remi.src.rpm You will then edit the .spec file and add your needed compile options. –  dmourati May 26 '11 at 23:24
