Thanks for the update. We're not using SQLite here (for RC, anyway), but
this showed up in a dependency bug on Gentoo. When users ask for SQLite
support, they pull in both php-5.3 and php-5.4 due to the lack of
sqlite2 in 5.4.

Only 5.3 would work anyway, so I guess the deps will have to be fixed
(for better error messages) or sqlite support dropped in the future as
users move to 5.4.
