He's right. This seems to be totally broken on Windows:

C:\>server\php\php.exe --version
PHP 5.3.2 (cli) (built: Mar  3 2010 19:40:13)
Copyright (c) 1997-2010 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2010 Zend Technologies
    with Xdebug v2.1.0, Copyright (c) 2002-2010, by Derick Rethans

C:\>server\php\php.exe -r "echo PHP_BINDIR";

This is defined while compiling PHP (prefix-option from compile.js), the way to fix this would be to do some run-time detection, not sure whether there's a proper way.

It is not only Windows problem:

root@core /# /root/src/php5.4-201202102030/sapi/cli/php -r 'echo PHP_BINDIR . PHP_EOL;';
root@core /#

It always point to directory provided in --prefix at compile time.

rk, that is correct, but on non-Windows you usually don't relocate the installation. Either you install using your package manager or by compiling yourself with a proper prefix, everything else is unsupported. On Windows we have the installer (which defaults to c:\program files\php (system dependent)) and the zip where people almost certainly won't use c:\php

Just to mention: On my configuration (PHP 5.4.4, Win 7) at least the value for 
PHP_BINARY is correct. Maybe this helps to create a work-around.
