the RPM is a binary.  if mysql support is not in the RPM,
there's no way to add it....

if you want to install PHP the simplest way, get the
sources and compile it yourself as a stanalone binary
(NOT using --with-apache or --with-apxs)

then you can tweak it however you want, and compile
in support for whatever you need... 

Here's the quick way of doing it:

1) download mysql, unzip it.
2) download PHP ,unzip it
./compile --with-mysql=/path/to/mysql   and other options
make test
make install

3) edit apache httpd.conf
4) restart apache

done.   :)
