Thanks. Without doing a thorough analysis, I can already confirm my suspicions: * The configure line includes '--without-gdbm' '--without-pspell' '--disable-posix' '--disable-sysvmsg' '--disable-sysvshm' '--disable-sysvsem' * Installed extensions which are from PECL include apcu, mongodb, imagick, newrelic, oauth, and redis I don't want to imply that bundling has no value, but it's not a red line preventing adoption.
