I don't know about slackware in particular
but compiling php using the option
should fix your problem

regarding configure
usually when you unpack the source, you can set options with the unpacked configure script
eg. tar xvzf php
cd php
./configure --with-curl --with-bz2 --disable-pdo
make install

as i said , i don't know about slackware in particular, perhaps it's better to ask on their forum/mailing list
