Hi there Alex,

I just had a quick question about the php4 port: How does one go about
enabling exif support without editing the Makefile? I've tried to put the
configure options in pkgtools.conf's MAKE_ARGS section, as well as in the
command line while trying to build the port. (make --enable-exif && make
--enable-exif install) However, both ways fail. (While trying to do
portupgrade -f php4 with enable-exif specified in the MAKE_ARGS section, it
reports that upgrading failed. With the make option it says -- - is not

I was able to enable exif support by editing php4's Makefile, but that
doesn't seem like a good choice considering every time the port is updated
the options will be replaced.

Any insight or help in this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
