MySQL is 5.1.11

I did just "solve" the problem. Having read , 
which notes a similar problem with the php5-mysql (not mysqli) 
extension, I did a "make && make deinstall && make reinstall" on 
first net/php5-sockets and then

PHP no longer dumps core. I have no insight as to what this 
fixed--totally cargo cult configuration on my part. So, maybe this is 
still an issue with the port that demands attention. (If it was 
something I did, it would at least be good to know what, so I don't 
do it again... ;)
