It may be available on the epel repo, but as it is just a bunch of
php's put into a webfile I tend to just get the tarball and configure
Apache/PHP to run it.
Does the rpm have any features beyond that? Patches / Plugins?

Squirrelmail has been fraught with issues in the past that allowed
spammers to use it to relay email. It may have been the fault of PHP, I
can't honestly remember. In any case 1.4.22 is the latest stable
version, so you should be ok to use the rpm in that repo for the time
being.

It is perhaps better to use the EPEL repository to get security updates
(if there are) ?

Is there a guarantee that a package is being actively maintained if it
is in the EPEL repository? I checked the FAQ and can't pin down what
they do in those instances.
I only say, as I have stated off-list, the reason I've not been using a
repo for some php packages is that I've found that they were sometimes
lagging behind with the current stable version, and that security issues
existed that had not been patched by the repo in question.
