        I though the documentation stated that all path variables need to be 
specified if it is outside your path. In any case I think even --with-
mysql may be optional nowadays (Isn't mysql compiled in by default). It 
is most likely should be set to /usr (RPM'd binaries) or /usr/local (
MySQL compiled from tarball)

        The easiest way to find this out is to check a RedHat phpinfo.php 
installation, you'd see that it is compiled as --with-mysql=shared,/usr. 
The "shared" part just meands that MySQL will be a dynamically loadable 
php extension instead of compiled in.

        Hope this helps,
