I had the same question, Brion said:
"You shouldn't do anything; the primary benefit of turck mmcache and
other PHP opcode caches is caching the compiled PHP scripts, which
requires no configuration in MediaWiki."

and Dorozynski said:
"Turck mmcache is not developing any more, and existing code supports php up
to 4 version only, and not version 5. Try eAccelerator
(http://eAccelerator.net) rel. 0.9.5, its support php version as 5 as 4.
However Brion once recommended APC (http://pecl.php.net/package
> /APC) as
> better than eAccelerator :-))
