yes it is the same, but that is not the point, see above :)

The advantage of having php in a separate directory is that you can delete it
before installing a new version. Instaling everything from source
in /usr/local or /usr or wherever leaves you no chance for deinstallation,
because you don't know what files were installed and where. When you are
going to upgrade your php installation, the new one will overwrite some files
(tha files that it installs) but some files from the old installation might
be left (executables, libs, headers, etc....). At this point your system is
already messed up and might later need a new installation! Therefore on most
systems there are facilities called package/port managers that help you
safely install and deinstall stuff without leaving any remains. Remains might
later break other applications that you want to install. It's a general
practice for maintaining your system clean. Moreover on different systems
stuffs goes in different places and in new app versions default paths might
change, therefore if you want to have a maintainable system you must always
specify a prefix directory when installing from source.

It seems that you need to inform yourself better:
* CentOS is not an OS, it is a GNU/Linux distribution, which is explicitly
stated on [1]: "CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from
sources freely provided to the public by a prominent North American
Enterprise Linux vendor."
* there is no stock php, but php that you might install via a package,
moreover it is common practice from GNU/Linux distros to put apps in /usr and
confs in /etc


But at the end, you ca do with your systems what you want :) it's the freedom
that Unix-like systems give you!
