@MichaelHampton thanks for the response, I have read through all the posts i've been able to find on mysqlnd, both through support and cpanels community forums; the raw-opts were the only documented thing I have been able to find. Other posts appear to say it is possible but not supported, however the most recent post was a year ago, asking basically the same question, but getting no response. – MCannon Dec 12 '12 at 22:04

You will need the mysql_config program, which should have come with your MySQL installation.

If that program is not available you will have to check/reinstall the MySQL packages, or rebuild MySQL from source and ensure that the mysql_config program is installed somewhere where the PHP installer can find it.
