Also missing:

  ext/php_pdo.dll
  ext/php_pspell.dll

(Or do I now need to compile PHP myself to get these?  All
three are included in php-5.2.14-Win32-VC6-x86.zip.)

I ran the corresponding installer,
<http://windows.php.net/downloads/releases/php-5.3.3-Win32-VC6-x86.msi>,
but it doesn't have these files either.

PDO is builtin. libmysql is not used anymore, 5.3.x uses mysqlnd (see the documentation or migration for more info). pspell is not available anymore, you can use enchant instead (which provides many backends like openoffice dictionary).

Thank you for the response!

I will submit separate documentation bugs for
<http://php.net/manual/en/mysql.installation.php#mysql.installation.windows>
and <http://php.net/manual/en/pdo.installation.php> (which
both mention these DLLs and don't point out that they're not
used in PHP 5.3).

Excellent; for others' reference:

- To get PDO to work I uncommented the php_pdo_*.dll
  extensions I was interested in but left
  "extension=php_pdo.dll" commented out.
- To get mysql_* functions to work I simply uncommented
  "extension=php_mysql.dll".
