It is impossible to specify php.ini in runtime, since it is
loaded before any PHP script has chance to execute. However,
in Apache you can modify default PHP settings with php_value
directives using VirtualServer, Directory and Location blocks.

Waiting for your feedback on the issue.

1) I will attempt to duplicate the problem -- I will post an update with my results.

2) In my original report, I said I wanted to specify the php.ini file at *runtime* as 
opposed to at compile time.  I'm aware of the --with-config-file-path option :-)

I fear you have some other problem here. Symlinks work with
php.ini just fine, as they do with almost every other Unix
Also, there *is* an option to specify configuration file
path, it's --with-config-file-path.
Please, verify that you indeed have problem with this
setting and if so, please provide your configure line,
phpinfo() output and result of the "ls -l" on relevant files.

Since PHP 4 does not give us the option to specify a configuration file (e.g. php.ini) 
at runtime, we decided that we would instead point CONFIGURATION_FILE_PATH at /etc and 
provide a symbolic link from /etc/php.ini to /our/path/php-cluster.ini.

However, it appears that the config file reading routines will not traverse symbolic 
links.  This essentially breaks our ability to have cluster-specific ini files.  

So, what we'd like to have fixed is the symlink traversal problem, and (more of an 
RFE) the ability to specify the config file itself (not just the path) at runtime.
