i think you are mistaken, if you configure well your apt
preferences file, it will go smoothly without problem, for example
here, the official repositary has a priority higher than the
dotdeb one, and because php5 is not available in sarge, there will
be no problem.

Here the php5 package had all the features i needed.

A bad rewrite rules can make problem, but i admit that the error
in the error.log will be different than this one.

like i said before compile php5 will just add more problem to
maintain your box in my opinion :]
