[php-maint] Bug#443390: php5-cgi: -c config file settings overriden by global config

Package: php5-cgi
Version: 5.2.0-8+etch7
Severity: normal

It would appear that php5-cgi reads the file specified by -c first,
parses it and then follows it up with the global config files
(/etc/php5/...). The end effect of this is that there is no way to
override the globals for, say, some site or some other use via this
option and as such makes it rather useless.

I confirmed this by running php5-cgi -c ... first and verifying the
config reported by phpinfo(). None of the desired changes were
registered. I then did an mv /etc/php5 /etc/php5.old and ran php5-cgi -c
... again and verified. The desired changes were present then.

I believe simply switching the order the config files are read/parsed 
in would fix this.
