I have two almost identical FreeBSD servers with FreeBSD 7.0, Apache
2.2.11 and PHP 5.2.8. After a restart of Apache four days ago, the PHP
module on one of those servers no longer loads /usr/local/etc/php.ini
and I can't for my world figure out what's preventing it. My workaround
right now is to move php.ini to / where it is loaded properly.

phpinfo on non-working server:

phpinfo on working server:

According to php.net the default location for php.ini is /usr/local/lib
and to change that you have to compile PHP with
--with-config-file-path=/some/path but I can't see that this is done on
FreeBSD. Still /usr/local/etc is listed in phpinfo's "Configuration File
(php.ini) Path". What mechanism does FreeBSD use to alter the default
location of the ini file? Can I somehow have interfered with that mechanism?

The following things DO work though:
- Setting PHPRC to /usr/local/etc (as described in php.ini) and
restarting Apache loads /usr/local/etc/php.ini correctly.
- CLI version works correctly regardless of PHPRC:
# php -i | grep php.ini
Configuration File (php.ini) Path => /usr/local/etc
Loaded Configuration File => /usr/local/etc/php.ini

No errors are listed in any log-file and I've been banging my head
against the wall for four days now trying to solve this... Any help
would be appreciated to figure out what stupid mistake I've made. :-)
