Just finished a long shell script for installation of a PHP project, and came to the realization that an automated installation thing for PHP projects would be a good thing. If there still isn't anything available in about a month I'll probably start one. I don't know if autoconf/make is really suited well to do this, or rpm (prob not since most apache/php installs aren't from rpm, so I don't think rpm could easily detect them), or whether something that just built a shell script would be best. I do know that the current standard of each project providing their own (sometimes lacking) INSTALL file isn't as suited for new users as is running rpm -i or make;make install.
