when running configure, --disable-libxml doesn't work. The value for PHP_LIBXML_DIR is checked in too mane places in the configure file!! Here is what I had to do to get it to work:

--disable-libxml --without-libxml --disable-dom --without-pear --disable-simplexml --disable-xml

And it is still not working. There are way too manythings enabled by default in the configure file. I understand that this is a beta version but wouldn't it be a good idea to leave things turned off by default and leave it to the user to turn it on?

You can always use '--disable-all' which disables all 'enabled-by-default' stuff.
