the first place to look for a php.ini is supposed to be 
the directory where the php binary is installed

this is done by taking the dirname out of 
and then appending php.ini

on the other hand sapi_module.executable_location
is just a copy of argv[0] for CLI

so if the CLI is just called as 'php' it looks for php.ini
in "php/php.ini"

a realpath() call should be added somewhere to fix this

Reproduce code:
strace php 2>&1 | grep php.ini

Expected result:
php.ini looked for in /usr/local/bin/php.ini

Actual result:
php.ini looked for in php/php.ini
