hmmm, for the *.pod part:
Which parts need should be covered (mostly the procedural API is just a
wrapper around the raw librrd).

For the OOP part there will be docs available as soon as they gets
merged in and stable enough to not change too often.

The first version I'd be glad to include in the RDD tree would cover the
version without the OOP; and thus there's (except for some part's I'll
have to look up from the other bindings) nothing too wide open in that

And now for the build tree part: When buildung the PHP extension you
basically have three steps for compiling: phpize to create the header
stuff, ./configure to set up the build stuff and makefile and a make for
the actual building. Giving other root paths here should pretty much do
it. the often cited "make install" at the end is only necessary to copy
the compiled files into the PHP extension directory - thus can be
skipped for only building it. I'll investigate the actual phrazing though.
