As can be seen by the phpinfo page above I had set the same options that I have in the 5.x branch to do a side by side install of 7.0.0 on my CentOS 6.7 server with cPanel.  When I did a make install on the source, after a configure and make, the install was done to /usr/local/bin/ and not to /opt/php7 as I had set in the configuration options.  While this does not seem to have broken my server, and I was able to still set the needed options on the server to load the new version via a handler, this could break any system where /usr/bin is symlinked to /usr/local/bin.  I am not completely sure if this is intended for the new version but this could cause problems for anyone that has configuration scripts with all of the needed options included so that new minors can be built.

Please bear with me regarding this report, is my first one here and not really sure what other info you may need.

Test script:

Expected result:
This is the settings that were set in the configure stage.

'--prefix=/opt/php7' '--with-config-file-path=/opt/php7/lib' '--with-config-file-scan-dir=/opt/php7/lib/php.ini.d'

Actual result:

No bug here. Copying straight from your phpinfo:

'--prefix=/opt/php7' '--with-config-file-path=/opt/php7/lib' '--with-config-file-scan-dir=/opt/php7/lib/php.ini.d' '--disable-opcache' '--enable-bcmath' '--enable-calendar' '--enable-exif' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-gd-native-ttf' '--enable-intl' '--enable-libxml' '--enable-mbstring' '--enable-pdo=shared' '--enable-soap' '--enable-sockets' '--enable-zip' '--prefix=/usr/local'

Note that you have a 2nd --prefix flag there set to /usr/local. This will override the first one.

Wow.  I read over the options at least 2 times and missed that.  Thanks!
