It would be very helpful in a CGI (or FastCGI) setup to have an include directive for php.ini that includes a file where the directive occurs.

This way you could have a central php.ini for all virtual hosts and include this in each virtual host's php.ini.

I know that with mod_php you can put most of the directives into Apache's VirtualHost directives, but with mod_fastcgi/mod_cgi this is not possible.

There's already this which can be used to accomplish pretty much same thing:

                          Set the path where to scan for                                                                                            
                          configuration files

I don't see what it would help in the situation where you  
want to have a common main php.ini for all vhosts or  
subgroups thereof and just override some values on a  
per-host basis..  
--with-config-file-scan-dir would be a static path, 
wouldn't it? 
The only solution I could imagine to use 
--with-config-file-scan-dir=\$CONF_PHP so that $CONF_DIR 
could be set in the fastcgi starter/wrapper script. But I 
don't think that it's supposed to work like that. 
As it seems, what I'll have to do is write a script that 
scans for files like php_override.ini in the vhost 
directories and merges them into a single php.ini file.

I second this feature request.  I am doing a FastCGI install of PHP and have exactly this need.  

I have multiple virtual hosts, each of which may need specific php.ini parameters set, but I would like to have a global php.ini file that I include from the vhost specific one.

A temporary work around I am looking at is recompiling PHP with my gloabl options set as the defaults, although I do not know yet if this is possible, and it is highly undesirable as changes in the global options require a recompile.
