phpize as of 4.3.4 does NOT check that $builddir/build/shtool is executable before it tries to run it.

Reproduce code:
1. unpack any source based php extension (I used turck-mmcache-2.4.6)
2. ensure that your /usr/lib/php/build/shtool does NOT have execute set.
3. in the new dir, run phpize.

Expected result:
should complete correctly.

phpize should set shtool to be executable before it tries to run it, or at the very least it should check if it is executable.

Actual result:
you get this error:
/usr/bin/phpize: line 1: /var/tmp/portage/turck-mmcache-2.4.6/work/turck-mmcache-2.4.6/build/shtool: Permission denied
/usr/bin/phpize: line 61: -f: command not found

i do realize that /usr/lib/build/* will have the execute bits set on them if the install-build make target has been used, but the purpose of this patch is to
