Thanks for informing me that CGI and CLI may use a different php.ini and that
they may be compiled differently.
The admin finally admitted that he ran a yum update which overwrote the
manually compiled CLI version.
The reason I missed it was that the build date of the latest CLI version was
earlier than when the scripts broke.
