It is absolutly needed for distribution purposes. It is generally strange
to compile in, f.e. IMAP extension, into main PHP binary and make it
available in Linux distribution because it implies additional unneeded 
dependencies. That's why almost all extensions like IMAP, MySQL, PGSQL,
sockets, GD, PDF, etc could and should be compiled out of PHP4 source.
This also includes more manageable RPM or DEB specs. Imagine build of
15-20 packages from one source RPM. For example, in our ALT Linux
distribution we are packaging 18 PHP4 extensions including PHP-GTK which
specifically designed to be build as SCE.
