Are you suggesting that RATS (a source code scanner for C) would be able
to detect security vulnerabilities in PHP ?

That's a challenging proposition :)

As far as I know, very little exist in the area of "source code
auditing" for web application. Developing one is not easy (it's one of
our research tasks at the moment)

From what I've seen, the SWAAT tool mentioned elsewhere is little more
than what you can obtain through grep...
