Never modify "configure" scripts.  You need to modify the autoconf
template the configure script is built off of.

In the case of lang/php5, autoconf is run to build the configure script
during the "make configure" stage (which is being executed during part
of "make install").  Note the USE_AUTOTOOLS line in the Makefile.

Make your changes to configure.in.
