Zend Optimizer executable stack

<puts Gentoo PHP maintainer hat on />
Hi folks,

I've just been informed of http://bugs.gentoo.org/264856 (ZendOptimizer have executable stack, php needs PAX flag MPROTECT disabled) and would like to ask if it is intended and necessary for ZendOptimizer to run with an executable stack like this. It inconveniences hardened users and confuses quite many folks, appearently. I've also found viewtopic.php?f=57&t=451&p=19972, but the post doesn't mention if this is "works as advertised" because your public documentation lacks information on running under SELinux or PAX (or I lack searching skills, please point me in the right direction if that's the case).

Please advise.

At present we don't officially support running under SE Linux.
