comment PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library
Nothing more than the file is required, try copying it instead. Alternatively update the reference in the file in /etc/php.d/X.ini, or it may be in your master php.ini

Does /usr/local/lib/php/20090626/libpcre.so exist? Are you sure it's running from lighttpd and you don't just have error display off?

comment run local MySQL instance for fast mysql_real_escape_string calls

comment PHP mail not working anymore
@Chris try searchings the logs for your MTA for your email address (ask Google if unsure) and see if the mail even made it into the queue/attempted delivery etc - only once it works from the command line return to debugging it from PHP.

Due to the distributed, cached nature of DNS it is not going to be a bottleneck unless you set an outrageously low TTL.

Unless you have a specific kernel-based requirement (perhaps a bugfix or feature) there's no need to deviate from the default kernel.
