[Monetdb-developers] php_monetdb.dll

I know nothing about PHP, so I cannot answer that part of your question.

However, I'd like to point out that the latest released source tarball (cf.,
http://dev.monetdb.org/downloads/sources/Latest/) is everything but an
"incorrect version".  Rather, it's the recommended version for users that
need/want to build MonetDB from source on any Unix-like platform.
However, building MonetDB from source on Windows is (currently?) only
supported with the HG sources.
In fact, we strongly recommend to use binary installers on Windows (cf.,
http://dev.monetdb.org/downloads/Windows/Latest/), unless you really need to
build from source (and hence are familiar with this).
If you use the HG sources, we strongly recommend to checkout the latest
release tag (currently "Jul2012_release"), or at least the head of the
latest release branch (currently "Jul2012").

Kind regards,
