4.3.8 changes the structure of the PHP ports.  Now, you have the main 
PHP port, and all of the extensions are "slave ports" that have to be 
compiled and installed separately.  So, theres a separate port for 
*each* extension.  If you go to FreshPorts and look at the lang/php4 
port, you'll see a list of all the new slave ports and where they fall 
in the ports hierarchy.. Also a word of caution, you'll want to comment 
out the path to extensions in your php.ini. 

Hope this helps
