=) If something is not optimal, I prefer to make it optimal and fix
what depends on it :-)

I already have a patch for your port (since it's quite a copy of one
of my php extension Makefile ;-)). BTW the php4 port is working,
you may already fix the dependency (or wait untill the re-commit and
the commit of the include makefile). Simply add USE_PHPIZE=yes and
remove a lot of lines :-)

Thanks :)

Some days ago I did a search for all ports depending incorrectly on
mod_php4 (incorrectly for the new php/pear ports system, of course)
and excepts ports maintained by Thierry Thomas and me (which are many,
but we projected this change) there are very few others (about 4 or
5), so that's not a huge commit. Later, without hurry, we can adjust
ports that correctly depends on mod_php4 to use the include Makefile.
