Maybe you missunderstand phpX-extensions metaport. It install itself as
phpX-extensions and phpX-something is installed as dependency. If you
unsinstall phpX-extensions, only this one port is uninstalled and no
dependency is touched. It is expected behavior!
phpX-extensions is easy way how one can install a bunch of phpX ports in
one step. portinstall phpX-extensions will install phpX and choosen
phpX-something and pecl-something.
If you need to unsinstall all php ports, you must unsinstall them
manualy by pkg_deinstall phpX-\* pecl-\*.
So the right way to do your task was: pkg_deinstall php4-\* pecl-\* &&
Isn't it nice and easy?
