Mike is on sabbatical lately, so I don't expect you'll see an answer
from him.

As far as I'm aware, the PHP folks have made no effort to make php
properly re-entrant, thus it won't work with anything but the prefork
mpm.  It's not a matter of compiling it with different options.  It's
a matter of the php authors cleaning it up to be thread safe.

TLDR; Stick with prefork if you want php.
