[Mediawiki-l] enabling eaccelerator

My eaccelerator cache is in /opt/lamp/tmp/eaacelerator/ 
I think this is not a default location. How can I tell mediawiki to use
this location? And how can I know whether eaccelerator is working with
MW or not? 
(eaccelerator is showing as enabled in phpinfo)

"The absence of alternatives clears the mind marvelously"

It doesn't show on Special:
I just have:
## Shared memory settings
$wgMainCacheType = CACHE_ACCEL;
$wgMessageCacheType = CACHE_ACCEL;
$wgParserCacheType = CACHE_ACCEL;
$wgMemCachedServers = array();

It doesn't show up in Special:Version, but benchmark it (with Apache
for instance) with and without the caching enabled, and you should see
