This is what is written in the README file of TurckMMCache:
Since version 2.3.15, Turck MMCache is compatible with Zend Optimizer's
loader. Zend Optimizer must be installed after Turck MMCache in php.ini.
If you don't use scripts encoded with Zend Encoder then we do not recommend
you install Zend Optimizer with Turck MMCache.
Turck MMCache does not work in CGI mode.
Here are some other products that provide the same functionality:
PHP is written by Zend, that's why you see their name in the sysinfo. I also read here at WHT that the lead developer for MMCache has gone to work for Zend so updates have been slow coming from them.
Personally I would suggest two options:
1) Use IonCube's PHP Accelerator and don't run Zend encoded files, run IonCube encoded files. (This option is free)
2) Use Zend's Accelerator with the Zend Optimizer if you absolutely have to run Zend encoded files. (This option can get pricey but is clearly the best)

Turk mmcache is free program , and a develop team have non profit in it . And turk mmcache is free but it better , faster a Zend accelertor which is cost nearly 10 000 $ for a license , so ofcourse Zend company have to asked Turk develop team to join them with a big $$$ .
My 3 cent
Just as an FYI, for those of you who are small businesses (less than $250,000 in annual revenue if memory serves), then you can get Zend Encoder, Zend Accelerator, and Zend Studio for $295.00. Not very expensive in my book then.

That $295.00 is a yearly license without Support or Upgrades and only applies for a single processor I believe. Upgrades would be pretty important since PHP5 is right around the corner and if you don't get the upgrades when you buy the initial license they charge you $155 a pop for upgrades.
Getting the Encoder is what really makes that whole package enticing. Normal pricing for that package is like $1900.00 US.
The small business specials certainly offer big savings over their normal pricing....
