Configuration with Package Manager (KDE)

I want to install php using the Package Manager tool (KDE: Start Application button - System - Package Manager). The default options include --without-mysql. I checked this with the phpinfo() function. Of course, I want to include mysql support. Is it possible to use the GUI's to configure php to work with mysql?

I've already accomplished this with a .tar.gz file ... the whole configure, make, install thing. I've been fighting with that for weeks. I find the method violently frustrating, and I hope that I can avoid ever having to configure and install packages with that method again. I hate trying to figure out what the options mean and whether I do and do not need to include them. I just want a list that I can cheerfully browse, marking yes or no.

No, I don't want an rpm package. I want a GUI that gives me a list of installation options. I do not want to have to figure out parameters and/or command options.

Either KPackage or Software Manager/rpmdrake will give a GUI that will configure the rpm options that you are trying to avoid !
