PHP on windows, fundamentally, consists of a series of dlls
(extensions), a runtime (php5.dll), supporting dlls (used by the
extensions), and then the SAPI files (php.exe, php-cgi.exe).

The only element that is "server" related, would be php-cgi.exe and
for older versions of PHP, php5isapi.dll. There are other SAPIs (ways
of running PHP).

The SAPI files are small as all they do is sit between the executing
environment and php5.dll.

So. Don't worry about them.
