If you want MySQL support in PHP you *must* include the --with-mysql option.
If you don't specify the location of the MySQL library files (the part after
the "=") then PHP will use its built-in libraries which is fine on the RaQ3.

Yes, include --with-gd.  --with-gd=/usr should do it.  I don't recall what
version of GD is on the RaQ3 by default so you may want to check and if it's
old you may want to consider upgrading before installing PHP.

Yes, you should install PostgreSQL before installing PHP.  I recommend
searching the list archives for cobalt-users.  You can find them at the AIMS
Group archive site, same site you referenced in your post.  It might be a
better idea to ask about the PHP install on cobalt-users (go to
www.cobalt.com to subscribe, after searching the archives of course) since
everyone on that list is running RaQ systems, while my guess is that only a
fraction of the people on this list are.
