the license isn't a big deal and will be changed when it is feature
complete i am told, so it can be compatible with PHP core and
hopefully be merged.

or you make a simple build script - i roll my own .deb file and
compile it only once, then deploy the .deb on all my servers. works
like a charm :)

i use ubuntu repositories for -everything- and over the years have
slimmed down what i compile. nowadays it is only nginx, php-fpm and
ffmpeg for the most part - as ubuntu and other repositories are either
too outdated or not "rich enough" to meet my needs.
