www/php4-session broken?

I'm trying to finish upgrading my Apache+PHP+Mysql installation. I have 
pages that die with session problems. I thought that session handling 
was native within the php distro.


% more Makefile

.include "${MASTERDIR}/Makefile"

% make
===>  php4-session-4.4.2_2 is marked as broken: Unknown component no.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/www/php4-session.

Is there another (new?) way of dealing with sessions in PHP? I searched 
for similar discussions on the matter but drew a blank. But surely I 
can't be the first person to be running into this?
