Hello guys,
PHP 5.4 is done

I strongly recommend do not change lang/php5 from 5.3 to 5.4 because:
- Register globals, magic quotes and safe mode were removed
- The break/continue $var syntax was removed
- Old "depricated" functions now REMOVED

We need to add new lang/php54 port to ports tree or rename lang/php5
to lang/php53. This is my advice. I myself am still dependent upon 5.2
and why I personally do not care :)
