Well, I'd do the following to avoid issues in the future.

1) Create a function like that below, which provides global access to
variables and allows you to update existing values:

        function val($name, $value = null)
                static $values = array();

                if ($value === null) {
                        return isset($values[$name]) ? $values[$name] : null;
                } else {
                        return $values[$name];

2) Create a php script that searches out define("SOME_NAME_PATTERN",
"value") and replaces that with val("some_name_pattern", "value").

3) Create a php script that searches out SOME_NAME_PATTERN and
replaces with val("SOME_NAME_PATTERN");

Not too bad in terms of work, as PHP's parsing capabilities are really nice.

Hope this gives you ideas :)
