For each PECL extension there is installation information, for both Linux/Windows, that use many pecl related entities from global.ent. The problem is these entities were created before the install.pecl chapter existed in the manual. Windows DLL locations have also changed.

Changes needed:

- Deal with Windows DLL's as the links have changed. The new URL for these is:
Note which are included in core ext/ and which are bundled in the separate pecl dll download, and keep track of php versions (this info changes through php 4, 5, 5.1, 5.2, 6) so for example a dll may be with core from php4-5, but moved to the pecl downloads in 5.1+

- Collaborate with the team for said dll files. Perhaps they should link to the dll's instead, that would be nice

- Consistently document each PECL extension in a similar fashion by always referring to install.pecl for compiling static and shared modules

- Deprecate some entities in favor of install.pecl info

- Surely other issues exist as well

The entity, which should be used in every PECL extensions documentation, now links to install.pecl so that was the first step :)
