Yes I noticed that at least for GetText and curl.

I found it easier to load the extension dynamically.  Is there a
performance hit doing that ?

I'm not a pro PHP'er, but just dumping the dll's and loading the
extensions in php.ini (in my case the php_xsl and php_pdo_pgsql dlls)
worked fine.  Maybe I was just lucky it worked.  

Thanx for the precisions Jeff.
