Actually, that's normal. In redhat and fedora you do have a /etc/php.d/
with several ini-files, that load the different shared extensions. I
suppose it makes it easier for the rpms to install new extensions, they
only need to drop a file in /etc/php.d/ instead of editing (or requiring
you to edit) /etc/php.ini/ 

[berntd at bender]~% ls /etc/php.d                                         
imap.ini  ldap.ini  mbstring.ini  mysql.ini  odbc.ini  pgsql.ini

You also have /etc/httpd/conf.d/: 

[berntd at bender]~% ls /etc/httpd/conf.d                                  
auth_ldap.conf   awstats.conf  php.conf     squirrelmail.conf 
welcome.conf     htdig.conf    ssl.conf
auth_mysql.conf  mailman.conf  python.conf  subversion.conf
auth_pgsql.conf  mrtg.conf     README       webalizer.conf

You might say I learnt this the hard way.
