This is what I have for phoenix (which is in a subdirectory phoenix)

# bind b (`b' for browse) to interactively ask for an URL to open
bind b colon exec phoenix/phoenix http://www.

Works fine. 

p.s. If you don't have phoenix0.5 yet, get it. It finally allows you to
middle click-paste a URL into the window to open the page (this didn't
work with previous phoenix versions) which is a key feature for browsers
under Linux IMHO, especially since there's no Windoze equivalent.
