Turns out, it was the php5.1 RPMs that were causing the issue. Two builds of PHP, weird conflicts and overlaps, nothing worked right. We removed them all and recompiled PHP, went with 5.3.3 because that's working on other servers (5.3.8 probably would have worked too but 3.3 is fine for now). Problems went away! Thanks.

@Rilindo RHEL5, Oracle build though if that makes a difference.

@quanta neither of those commands work (no such file or directory)

Your assumption is correct. Strangely, we have the php53-pdo package installed and up to date, but Drupal still says we have no PDO libraries available. It makes me think it's related to the --disable-pdo flag in the php configuration, but again, I'm not sure if it's easy to reconfigure and recompile php when you've installed it with yum. So you're saying that upgrading to RHEL6 would solve this? Are there more php53 packages in RHEL6, or is it just php again there? Thanks for your help.
