When compiled with --enable-discrd-path
PHP does not provide a valid PHP_SELF.

It seems to me as simple as concatenating
SCRIPT_NAME with PATH_INFO, do I miss something ?

In absence of a PATH_INFO PHP_SELF is correct
( it is set to the value of SCRIPT_NAME )
But when a PATH_INFO is given PHP_SELF is set to
its value. For example:

  URI: /php4info.cgi       --- PHP_SELF: /php4info.cgi
  URI: /php4info.cgi/test  --- PHP_SELF: /test

Of course the scripts themself start with #!/path/to/php4
And the interpreter was compiled with --enable-discard-path

You can find my patch proposition for this PHP Bug at:
(I have sent this to php-dev list, but there was
no response from php core developers)...

Maybe updating this bug report would make any change.
